Document Description
The District developed a Groundwater Quality Protection Program (GQPP) to protect and preserve the quality of its most valuable natural resource, groundwater. The overall GQPP is designed to protect groundwater quality from degradation by discharges from septic tank leach-fields. MSWD proposes to construct 30,000 lineal feet of new sewer pipeline that would be 8-inch in size within GQPP Sub Areas H and I of the District’s service area, within an area of approximately 220 acres. The installation of this new sewer pipeline would convert areas within MSWD’s service area from septic system to a sewer system. This project pertains to Sub Areas H and I and would install the pipeline required to connect 678 parcels to the MSWD sewer system and abate over 468 on-site septic systems.
