Ribbon Cutting Event

Placer County invites the public to join in celebrating the completion of the SMD 3 Regional Sewer Project. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held at the former wastewater treatment plant site, located at 4928 Auburn Folsom Road, on April 24th at 1 p.m.

Project Description

Placer County is constructing a sewer pipeline and pump station to convey wastewater from Sewer Maintenance District 3 (SMD 3), located in the Horseshoe Bar area of Loomis, to the existing Sewer Maintenance District 2 (SMD 2) sewer collection system, located in Granite Bay, for treatment at the Dry Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Roseville and, ultimately, decommissioning the SMD 3 Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). This project will bring the sewer district into compliance with State standards and will be accomplished with no increase to sewer rates.

The Board of Supervisors certified the environmental document for the project on November 27, 2012.
