Draining level and decommissioning sewage treatment lagoons
The recent construction to connect our wastewater effluent to the Donala Waste Treatment Facility has been substantially completed. Remaining, however, is the draining of the lagoons so evaporation can dry out the remaining sludge in the two lagoons previously used to treat waste.
The District is planning to resume activities and complete the work at the existing Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF). The completion of the work will finalize all work for the Lift Station and Force Main Improvements project. The contractor is planning to mobilize to the WWTF site towards the end of August to remove and manage the contents of the existing lagoons. This work is anticipated to continue through September. The remaining work of equipment demolition and removal, grading and earthwork in and around the lagoons, and piping installations will follow with an anticipated completion in either late October or early November. Weather conditions will be monitored through the work and the necessary schedule adjustments made in order to best assure completion of all work by the end of 2020.
