Recyling more than just water
Concrete crushing at P2
Late last year a couple of clarifiers and digesters at Plant No. 2 were demolished as they were no longer needed. What remained was a large pile of concrete. Check out the time-lapse video of the demolition.
Over the next four weeks all the concrete will be crushed onsite so it can be recycled and used as an asphalt base. The crushing operation may generate some noise, but it will only be during the day and we feel that being able to reuse the material is worth the extra sound. Video of the crushing operation will be posted shortly.
Concrete crushing hours will take place M-F, 7 a.m. – 3 p.m. For additional information please contact the Construction Hotline at 714-378-2965 or via email at email@example.com or visit the project webpage.
Over the next four weeks concrete of the demolished clarifiers and digesters at Plant No. 2 will be crushed onsite so it can be recycled.

OCSD’s annual compliance report details how we met regulatory requirements onsite, and how our biosolids were recycled offsite. Biosolids compliance reports are submitted to regulators by February 19th each year. OCSD's submitted report is available on our website: ocsd.com/503.
How can we help keep planet habitable and participating in the regeneration of our planet? How can the cycle of a banana peel make or break us? How can we restore fertility to our soil, regenerate our food systems, clean our water, and help reverse climate change? It’s as easy as Composting!
