The State

May 14, 1987

Santa Rosa Board of Public Utilities agreed to spend $11 million on filters and other tertiary-treatment devices to let its regional sewage plant continue discharging treated effluent legally into the Russian River. The new equipment is designed to keep the plant operating until a new long-range disposal system is ready. Controversy has dogged previous discharges to the river, which also provides drinking water for several communities downstream. Board members run the plant for Santa Rosa and four nearby communities.
