Continued Commitment to Service and Safety Amid COVID-19

Each day, the Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) treats approximately 3.3 million gallons of wastewater and produces 200 thousand gallons of recycled water to support the needs of the San Luis Obispo community. Staff are continuing their commitment to safe and healthy operations during the COVID pandemic, as they perform these essential wastewater treatment services.

The WRRF is committed to the health and safety of staff and our community. In response to the most recent state and local requirements, the following modifications to daily operations will continue until further notice:

  • All public tours continue to be postponed.

  • The onsite internship program remains on hold.

  • Staff continue to accommodate normal business requests, employing virtual meeting technology where necessary.

  • Unscheduled site visits are not permitted at this time. If you need to visit the WRRF, please call in advance to schedule an appointment.

  • City and construction staff have been conducting daily health screenings, and request that you conform with the CDC’s social distancing and hygiene recommendations.

We will continue to keep the public informed and look forward to the time when we can return to standard operations.

Should you have any questions, or need to schedule an appointment to visit the WRRF, contact Chris Lehman at 805-781-7240 or
