Sewer System Management Plan. The State of California Waterboards requires all public sewer systems that own and operate one mile or more of sewage pipe to enroll in the Sanitary Systems General Order. A component of that order requires public sewer systems to draft, adopt, and implement a Sewer System Management Plan (SSMP). The District's latest SSMP was adopted in February 2022.

As part of the District's SSMP, the Operations and Maintenance Department performs various preventative maintenance tasks to help keep the sewer lines flowing. Some duties include hydro jetting sewer lines and conducting video inspections of sewer lines to ensure that the lines remain in good condition. Should any of the inspections result in degrading conditions, reactive measures are taken to ensure that issues are corrected promptly.
