County approves Los Osos sewer project
March 16, 2011
State mandates require a sewer system because septic tanks are polluting the groundwater.
Arguments over the project have been heated with residents wondering why not everyone in the community of over 14,000 is included in the mandates. The 5,000 households responsible for the sewer will be charged about $35,000 each.
On May 5th, the Regional Water Quality Control Board will consider adopting the project’s discharge requirements.
