The county Department of Public Works has scheduled a hearing Aug. 5 at Malibu Park Junior High School on a consultant's report covering the environmental impact of a proposed regional sewer system.
The hearing will begin in the auditorium at 7:30 p.m. with a brief presentation on the consultant's findings, preceding public comment, which will be limited to three minutes per person, until 10:30 p.m. The school is at 30215 Morning View Drive.
The consultant, James M. Montgomery Consulting Engineers, has recommended construction of a $38-million sewage treatment plant in Corral Canyon and a two-part pipeline system that would avoid the stretch of Pacific Coast Highway in the Big Rock landslide area.
The consultant's report is available for review at the Malibu Civic Center Library, 23519 W. Civic Center Way, and at the Public Works Department's Los Angeles public affairs office, 2250 Alcazar St. It is also available at the department's Malibu office, 23533 W. Civic Center Way, from 8 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.
Copies of the report are being distributed to homeowners groups and may be purchased at the department's Malibu and Los Angeles offices. The cost is $25 for the environmental impact part of the study and $25 for the project report, which describes the sewer system proposal.
