OCSD plans to invest over $2-billion in our infrastructure over the next 10 years as part of our current Capital Improvement Program (CIP). The CIP is focusing on upgrading, replacing, and constructing new facilities to continue the advanced wastewater treatment process you’ve grown accustomed to, as well as allow for greater water recycling to ensure a reliable local water supply. Many of these construction projects will take place at Plant No. 2.
The Neighborhood Connection Newsletter keeps ours neighbors informed about construction activities at our Huntington Beach facility.
There are also a number of smaller projects in construction that are focusing on items like upgrading the trickling filter odor control system, rehabilitating digester pumps, replacing gas compressor pipes, and water valve support upgrades. These smaller projects extend the life of the existing treatment facilities and the time between major rehabilitations. The adjustments, improvements, and/or minor repairs (outside of regular maintenance) allow our system to continue operating at optimal levels.
