Dry Creek Isolation Valves Installation

Increased the number of isolation valves to increase efficiency of system maintenance and minimize the potential for sewage spills.

Sewer Maintenance District 2 (Granite Bay Area) Trenchless Pipe Repairs

Repaired 2,000 linear feet of pipeline using pipe lining technologies.

Denitrification Treatment Process: Sewer Maintenance District 3 (Horseshoe Bar Road Area)

Helped meet State Discharge Permit requirements regarding final nitrate effluent limits.
