Some answers, please


I have some questions about sewage. Where could the proposed sewage treatment plant be located? Surely not in the Malibu Creek Floodplain liquefaction area now known as Legacy Park. How would a sewage plant in the defined area address septic leakage, agricultural runoff and road runoff from the 109-square-mile rapidly developing area that drains through Malibu Creek to Malibu Lagoon and Surfrider Beach?

How would the proposed sewage treatment plant affect pollution said to flow from Pepperdine through Marie Canyon to the Malibu Road shoreline? What studies have been done to determine how an array of state-of-the-art, onsite wastewater treatment technologies could be applied to individual problem areas?

Is one-size-fits-all with potential release into the sea the best possible answer for Malibu, or is it development-driven?
