San Simeon to cut wellhead-treatment plant ribbon May 19

San Simeon officials will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 3:15 p.m. Thursday, May 19, at the services district’s recently completed wellhead-treatment facility. The plant is near the tiny town’s community services district offices at 111 Pico Avenue.

Residents are invited to attend the brief event, which includes a walk-through of the small facility.

Those who can walk to the offices are encouraged to do so, because of limited space (parking and otherwise). Likewise, those who cannot walk are encouraged to carpool to the parking spaces reserved for them.

Other interested parties are encouraged to call the district office at 927-4778 for a tour at a later date.

The plant cost about $990,000, most of which is to be paid with grants.

The ribbon-cutting will be preceded by two related meetings. At the first, set for 2 p.m. in the Plaza del Cavalier Banquet Room (Cavalier Cove Room), 250 San Simeon Avenue, the San Simeon Community Services Water Committee will discuss the wellhead-treatment facility, discuss the agency’s water master plan, update the 2014-15 priority list and the district’s possibilities for Prop. 1 grant funds.

At the second meeting, scheduled for 2:30 p.m. in the same room, the full district board is expected to accept a USDA grant agreement for the wellhead-treatment facility project; grant award not to exceed $500,000.
