FPUD nixes treatment plant expansion study
Last updated 9/13/2007 at Noon
The Fallbrook Public Utility District will not be proceeding with a study to provide budget-level estimates to expand the capacity of FPUD’s Treatment Plant 1.
The 4-0 board vote August 27, with Milt Davies absent, noted that the study was not needed to serve existing customers and recommended that when development necessitated the treatment plant’s expansion that development should pay for the cost of the study as well as for its share of the expansion costs.
“They decided that they would only move ahead if developers funded the study,” said FPUD chief engineer Joe Jackson.
