Immediate Action Projects Phase 2 Begins at the Wastewater Treatment Plant

The second phase of work on the Immediate Action Projects related to the Clean Water Program’s wastewater treatment plant upgrades is beginning. A $6.3 million contract for the second phase of the Immediate Action Project, or IAP2, was awarded to Myers & Sons Construction LLC on January 7 upon City Council approval. The IAP2 construction package includes five separate projects that are needed to add backup protection to vulnerable points in the digestion and dewatering and solids handling processes, and to repair effluent piping.

To Flush or Not to Flush – Unused Medicines

Almost everyone has unused or expired prescription and over-the-counter medicines their house. Until recently, the usual way of getting rid of them was to flush them down the toilet. But, wastewater treatment plants are not designed to filter pharmaceuticals and hormones out of the water, and recent studies have shown that this creates a water quality issue that may negatively affect human health and ecosystems like the San Francisco Bay.
