Los Osos Water Recycling Facility wins the CWEA Tri-Counties Small Plant of the Year

In a community that might once have been considered highly contentious to their wastewater system, the Los Osos Water Recycling Facility is exceeding effluent discharge requirements and leveraging that effluent to reduce groundwater pumping, to slow saltwater intrusion, and reduce residual nitrates from past septic operations in the Los Osos groundwater basin. Dedicated staff focus Operations and Maintenance efforts on service to the community and long-term equipment reliability. There is a healthy sense of pride in the plant’s quality of operation and appearance. We are grateful for our staff that diligently work to provide wastewater service for our community.
