While the heavy rains have helped with drought conditions, the ground is still so dry that minor localized flooding in our swales and ditches will be occurring. All control structures are open, the pump station is operating for the first time in several months, the canal system is discharging properly, and the recently completed Storm Water Treatment Area is able to retain and store millions of gallons. Rainfall will produce storm water build-up in the secondary retention areas of swales and drainage ditches. While caution should be used when walking, biking, or driving through these areas, the natural progression of discharge will make this a temporary issue. Our system works; just be patient as the water drains and discharges into the canals, ponds, and lakes. Finally, if there are culverts in front of your house help monitor any debris that may get caught in them and have water back-up; your help is appreciated.

Surveying for the new and modern waste water treatment plant has been completed and only a few more tests remain on the site, located just west of Thunder Road between Rt. 98 and Duane Palmer Blvd. The construction plans and budget will be completed by June 26th for submission to the State Revolving Fund. The District is in line to receive full funding for the project with a 30 year no interest loan.

The entrance off Duane Palmer Blvd. will be used by our District trucks for access to the plant. A full engineering report on the plant is available for public review in the District office.
