The City announces an upcoming noise, odors, and dust disruption associated with the Water Resource Recovery Facility (WRRF) upgrade project at 35 Prado Road.
During the months of October and November 2021, project contractors will be installing shoring piles for the new facility. The work will be done per state and local regulations to minimize the impacts to the community.
The WRRF is undergoing a 3.5 year major construction project known as SLO Water Plus. SLO Water Plus will address aging infrastructure to improve the WRRF’s ability to recover resources traditionally classified as waste. The upgrade will improve the plant’s efficiency while helping reduce our dependency on reservoir and groundwater supplies long into the future. Further it will improve noise and odor impacts to the community and will deliver significant long-term benefits to water quality, the environment, resiliency and community education.
The project team has put in place measures for noise suppression and dust control. However, if you have any concerns, please contact the WRRF Supervisor Chris Lehman at 805-431-4372.
