Project Description

To comply with an enforcement order from the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board, Placer County will be installing a pump station and pipeline to convey Applegate’s wastewater to the existing sewer collection system for treatment at the SMD 1 Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) in North Auburn and, ultimately, decommissioning the treatment ponds at the Applegate WWTP.

The new pump station will be constructed on Applegate Road near Merry Lane.
