Road vacated near LOP Treatment site

The Board of Supervisors voted their intent to vacate a portion of Riata Way near the Lake of the Pines Wastewater Treatment Plant in a special meeting Tuesday, with a public hearing on the vacation scheduled for June 20.

Abandoning the right of way, which lies on wastewater treatment plant property, is necessary for construction of a new $16 million facility there, said Gordon Plantenga, Wastewater Operations Manager for Nevada County Department of Transpor-tation and Sanitation.

Construction, scheduled to begin this summer and be completed by fall of 2007, is needed to meet new sewage effluent requirements, he said.

Construction projects are also slated for Cascade Shores and Lake Wildwood treatment plants, Plantenga said, which will be done within the same time frame.

Public comment on rate hikes for sewage fees are scheduled for 1:30 p.m. June 27 in Board Chambers at the Rood Government Center, he said.
