Community members are invited to a public workshop to discuss the Morro Bay sewage treatment plant on Thursday.

The workshop will be from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Veterans Memorial Building, 209 Surf St.

The focus will be for the community to hear a project update, to brainstorm ideas and issues, and to provide feedback, said Sam Taylor, the city’s deputy city manager.

Project managers Michael K. Nunley & Associates Inc. will present and then manage a discussion on the issue.

The Water Reclamation Facility Project is an estimated $102 million project that involves building both a new sewage treatment facility as well as a water reclamation facility, Taylor said.

“The city is seeking to rebuild the 62-year-old facility both due to age as well as to remove it from its place on the waterfront within a flood zone and tsunami zone,” Taylor said.
