Beginning Monday, June 24, activity and vehicles are expected to hover around Cambria’s sewage-system lift stations as a contractor cleans the system and videotapes the pipes from the inside out to check for leaks and other potential problems.

The Cambria Community Services District owns, operates, and maintains 10 lift stations, along with associated force mains and gravity lines that distribute flows to the wastewater treatment plant.

The district is spending $75,000 this fiscal year on the project contracted to Pro Pipe Professional Pipe Services of Mission Viejo. The work is designed to help prevent problems, identify deficiencies and help safeguard the town’s environmental safety, all of which could ultimately save the money for the district and its ratepayers. 

Some of the equipment involved will be a Vactor truck, traffic-control equipment, flagmen and a camera truck that looks like a United Parcel Service vehicle, along with various CCSD trucks.

The district has about 59 miles of pipeline. Areas included in this project are: West Village, Happy Hill, Moonstone Beach Drive and East Village (including Main Street to Santa Rosa Creek Road, Burton Drive and West, Center, Bridge and Wall streets).
