Civic Center Sewer Project Timeline Granted Extension

Story Poles for Civic Center Treatment Plant

The city’s petition to grant a 2-year extension on to the Civic Center Wastewater Project was approved unanimously by the L.A. Regional Water Quality Control Board, City Councilmembers said at Monday’s City Council meeting.

Originally scheduled for a 2015 completion, the first phase of sewer construction now has until June 2017 for completion, meaning the city has additional time to gather funds, draw up plans and construct the infrastructure.

This also opens up the possibility for the Serra Canyon neighborhood to eventually opt out of the sewer, since they now have additional years to conduct soil and water tests as a way to prove they should not be obligated to hook up.
