In response to the decline of the San Joaquin-Sacramento Delta ecosystem and concerns over ammonia, nitrates and pathogens, a series of tough new water quality requirements were imposed on us by the State of California through our discharge permit. Significant upgrades to our wastewater treatment plant must be completed over the next 8 to 10 years. These upgrades, known as the EchoWater Project, are expected to cost between $1.5 and $2.1 billion to build and approximately $50 million in additional yearly operations and maintenance costs.
Accordingly, Regional San’s board of directors adopted amendments to its Consolidated Ordinance on March 26, 2014, including impact fee increases for residential, commercial and industrial customers over the next three years. The new ordinance is effective April 25, 2014, and the impact fee changes are effective beginning July 1, 2014.
