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.
