Byron, CA (August 10, 2023) – Field crews are moving forward with important maintenance and capital improvement work to bolster the Byron Sanitary District’s (Byron San) sewer collection system, as well as the District’s Wastewater Treatment Facility (WWTF).

Board directors recently approved Byron San’s Fiscal Year 2023-2024 budget, including a $300,000 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) to comply with regulatory requirements and ensure the district’s facilities are operated and maintained in line with industry best practices.

Among the projects, work will begin on East Camino Diablo Rd. to clear and clean the approximate 12,000 feet of Byron San’s main sewer collection lines. Crews will also use a camera to inspect the entire system. The entire process is expected to take 7-10 days, 

Some traffic impacts are anticipated. Starting on August 15th, work will begin along Byron Highway between Hoffman Ln. and Byer Rd, and from Byer Rd. to Holway Dr. Traffic control will be in place until work in that area is complete, anticipated to be two days. A project map is below.

Work is also underway to remove biosolids from Pond #1 at the WWTF to bring the pond back online. Staff are also in the process of making required updates to Byron San’s Sanitary Sewer Management Plan (SSMP).
