Supervisors to Address Wastewater Compliance Alternatives

December 02, 2011

The Placer County Board of Supervisors will hold a meeting on Tues., Dec. 6, 2011, in Auburn to consider alternatives for achieving compliance with regulatory requirements for Sewer Maintenance District 1 (SMD1). The meeting, to be held in the Planning Commission hearing room, 3091 County Center Drive, will begin at 9:00 AM, and the wastewater item is scheduled for 9:30 AM.

The Supervisors will be asked to consider alternatives to meet Regional Water Quality Control Board compliance requirements for SMD1. The treatment plant cannot meet certain current permit requirements and the District is incurring monthly penalties. SMD1 serves North Auburn, Christian Valley, Bowman and Applegate.

County staff is asking the Board to provide direction to:

  • Proceed with a regional solution for achieving SMD1 compliance and return to the Board no later than March 13, 2012 with recommendations for the Board; or
  • Return to the Board on Dec. 13, 2011, with a request to award the SMD1 Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade and Expansion project to the lowest responsive bidder.

Additionally, staff is asking the Board to provide any additional direction on the wastewater issue it deems appropriate.

In other matters, the Board will hold a public hearing on Homewood Mountain Resort Project. The hearing was continued from the Supervisors’ Nov. 15, 2011 meeting, which was held in Tahoe City.
