NOVEMBER LUNCH MEETING: Los Osos Wastewater Project
The Los Osos sewer project has been a local controversy since the 1970’s. More than 30 years after the regulatory mandate to build a community sewer, the project is finally on a path to success. Construction has been underway for more than a year and the largest portion of the $173 million project, the collection system pipelines, are nearing completion. The completed project will convert about 5,000 homes and businesses from septic systems to a community wastewater system. The project includes 49 miles of pipelines and 21 pump stations. The water recycling facility will have a capacity of 1.2 million gallons per day, and all of the wastewater will be treated to Title 22 tertiary standards and reused within the community. The project is scheduled to be ready for connections in about 2 years.
John Waddell is San Luis Obispo County's project manager for the Los Osos sewer project. He has been with the County for 13 years and has been working on the Los Osos project since 2006. Prior to his involvement in the sewer project, his experience includes design and construction of various public works utility and transportation projects. John is a graduate of Cal Poly with a degree in environmental engineering.
