Check back the last week of each month for the District Manager's most recent update on the Cayucos Sustainable Water Project...
March Board Meeting Update:
Dylan Wade of WSC notified the Board that the project is nearing completion and has entered the “closeout” phase. Substantial construction is complete. The work at Lift Station 5 is coming to a close as they install pump and final electrical this week, followed by testing next week. Also next week, sludge will be coming in. In April they will hold a 30-day performance test to ensure everything is working as intended.
Manager Koon stated that they will intermittently start pushing wastewater to the new plant in the first week of April, between periods of sending wastewater to Morro Bay for testing. It is projected that by the end of April all wastewater will be directed to the CSWP and the outfall will begin to be utilized.
Director Miller complimented the efforts made by Manager Koon and Dylan Wade and offered her opinion that the community is lucky to have them working on the project. Director Frank concurred, and Vice President Chivens commented that he is especially impressed by the change orders. Director Lyon stated that she feels blessed to be part of the project and thinks the community as a whole will be proud.
