The Wastewater Management Plan lays out the requirements and framework to meet future demands for wastewater treatment while maintaining water quality standards for waterbodies within the Metro Water District. These requirements include wastewater collection system inspection and maintenance, management of septic systems and decentralized systems and local wastewater planning. Specific tasks and milestones for implementing these recommendations are included for local governments as well as regional and state agencies.
The first five year update of the Wastewater Management Plan was adopted by the Metro Water District Board on May 7, 2009. The updated plan replaces the Metro Water District's September 2003 plan as amended.
