***7/25/16 - We are in the process of replacing the media of our Biofilters. This would involve shutting down one half of the Biofilters. The other half would be operational and the work is scheduled for 2 to 3 weeks. As a result, there may be increased odors from the sewer plant through the end of August***
Dave Gromm, former Director of Wastewater and Collections, along with Brian K. Martinez, Collection System Manager, were interviewed by Edie Hovermale of Channel 26's 'Pacifica Currents' about the City of Pacifica's Sanitary Sewer System and the Calera Creek Water Recycling Plant.
