OCWD and its consultant, Jacobs, are working to install the pilots into the new building and are finalizing the design of the pilot test. It’s anticipated that pilot testing will begin in November.
After receiving submissions for its Request for Proposals for a PFAS Treatment Systems Planning Study, OCWD has selected Carollo Engineers to lead the Study. The goal of the Planning Study is to help OCWD and its 11 retail agencies who may require treatment for their groundwater wells. The Planning Study will assess the number of wells impacted, location of wells, and areas available for a treatment system(s).
Earlier this month, OCWD and retail agencies met with Intertox to discuss regulatory changes and the science related to PFAS as a follow up to its meeting with regulators on September 24. OCWD will continue to work with Intertox and the state as further regulatory changes are considered.
OCWD also continues to work with other stakeholders throughout the state to share information and updates on PFAS issues. Upcoming presentations include:
SAWPA EC Task Force on November 13
ACWA Fall Conference December 3-6
State Water Resources Control Board PFAS Summit December 4-5
