Background Discussion

This is a county initiated text amendment to update the Water Supply and Wastewater Treatment Sub-Elements.
• Reinstate prior language in Policy in the Water Supply Sub-Element

• An updated analysis of per capita flows recommended a decrease in Level of Service standards for the Southeast and North WWTP.

a. No change recommended to the Southwest WWTP gallon per capita. (115 gpcd)
b. The Southeast WWTP existing LOS standard is 95 gpcd. The analysis recommends a decrease to 85 gpcd.
c. The North WWTP existing LOS standard is 95 gpcd. The analysis recommends a decrease to 80 gpcd.

• Projected population and revised per capita level of service standards extended the treatment capacity for user need.

• Policy is reworded for clarification.

• Incorporated reference to wastewater master plan; corrected map title and specific department names replaced with generic term “department director”.
