The Oxnard sewage plant treats about 32 million gallons of wastewater every day.
It is old and rusty and it occasionally fails, causing spills of partially treated wastewater into the ocean.
The struggling plant is the reason sewage bills have been steadily increasing these past two years. It is the reason four of the five members on the City Council faced the threat of losing their posts.
But some good news came to the embattled facility when Gov. Jerry Brown signed the state budget. Assemblywoman Jacqui Irwin, D-Thousand Oaks, has secured $9.5 million to go toward emergency repairs to the plant.
“It got our attention,” Irwin said. “There was so much politicking about it, eventually who’s going to be hurt are the residents. Hopefully, this helps move the city to stability.”
