    Sonoma, CA – The Sonoma Valley County Sanitation District (District) will host an informational community meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 6 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Sonoma Charter School to discuss a proposed sewer trunk main replacement project. District staff will be on hand to present information about the proposed project and to answer questions.

    Since 1994, the District has completed approximately 9.7 miles of major capacity and structural improvement projects at a cost of $14.9 million. As part of the ongoing effort to increase the system’s capacity and prevent sanitary sewer overflows, the District is carrying out 1.8 miles of high-priority projects over the next several years. The first phase of the project is expected to get under way starting in 2018. The multi-year project would replace a portion of the existing sewer trunk main alignment in three phases:

    • 1st Phase – From the intersection of 6th Street West & Studley Street, north to Highway 12, and up to Ramon Street;
    • 2nd Phase – From Highway 12 and Ramon Street, through Maxwell Farms Regional Park, to West Verano Avenue;
    • 3rd Phase – From Buena Vida Court to Happy Lane.

    “The Sonoma Valley County Sanitation District is continuing its ongoing efforts to upgrade and improve our sewer collection and treatment system,” said Water Agency Director Susan Gorin, who also serves as a sanitation district director in her role as county supervisor in the First District. “The District is committed to investing in the needed improvements to our sewer collection system. We’re systematically replacing old pipelines to maintain our community’s infrastructure and protect our environment.”

    The meeting will take place on:

    Wednesday, September 6, 2017

    6:00 p.m.—7:30 p.m.

    Sonoma Charter School,

    17202 Sonoma Highway, Sonoma

    A presentation will provide background information on the purpose of and need for the proposed sewer trunk main replacement, construction schedule, environmental review process, and time will be available for questions and answers about the proposed project.
