VIDEO. At the 6/8/2020 Sewer Authority Mid-Coastside (SAM) meeting during Director’s reports, Ric Lohman, reports from the LAFCO meeting that a bill started to move forward in the legislature to have sewer agencies start working with counties on storm water management.
A lot of storm water can get into sewer pipes. That mean that water no has to be treated. Bioswales are the latest thing to retain and detain water before it gets to the sewer pipes.
