Wondering WHY your WATER/SEWER BILL is so HIGH? Wondering WHAT to do about it? Join Citizens for Affordable Living and find out!
Costs for the proposed new water/sewer facility continue to rise! Not only the proposed project is not affordable for most residents, the project has grown unreasonably large and complex for Morro Bay’s expected population by the year 2040 of 12K residents.
Morro Bay’s existing sewer plant continues to be in good compliance with local, State and Federal regulatory agencies (EPA). In fact, we have fewer violations per year than the majority other plants in the State with having received four violations over the past ten years. The City and Staff who operate the plant at this high standard, have a lot to be proud of for their efforts through the years.
Since the existing plant is compliant, why does the City want to build a new plant? The reasons (in part) are City goals to treat our water to a higher level and be water independent, as-well-as the Water Quality Control Board’s goal to have our water treated to a higher level of purification.
A new plant that would provide reclaimed (recycled) water is also a driving force, but there is no market in Morro Bay, nor the surrounding agricultural areas, for recycled water.
