The City of San Juan Bautista hosted a Town Hall Meeting about choosing the best solution to the City’s water issues. The Town Hall Meeting on Tuesday, October 6th was held via  Zoom. At its October 13, 2020 meeting, the City Council was asked to make serious decisions about both the water and waste water systems. Projects to fix the issues with these systems are being evaluated, and the final decisions have to be submitted to state and federal regulators by October 15, 2020. To learn more about the Town Hall meeting, go to the City’s website at www.San-Juan-Bautista.ca.us.

A survey was mailed to all households at the end of last week (9/26/2020). Please complete the survey and mail it in the enclosed pre-stamped envelope as soon as possible.  You can find a copy of the letter here and aqui. If you require a new copy of your survey please contact City Hall at 1-831-623-4661. Each survey has its own unique ID so that non-respondents can be called for their response prior to the City submitting the State paperwork.

The third-party research group, Applied Survey Research (ASR), has been contracted to process surveys and submission to the Central Coast Water Board. Individual responses will be confidential however a summary of the data will be shared with the Central Coast Water Board in order to assist the City in demonstrating that it has a financial hardship. If the City can demonstrate that it has financial hardship then there will be different opportunities for the City to address its violations.


Below is a link to the draft Master Plans for water and waste water.  In addition to the assessment of the current systems, it includes an analysis of the system's ability to grow as described in the General Plan.  The back sections include a matrix that will be the path forward for our capital improvements. 
The Waste Water Master Plan includes the 80-page Preliminary Engineer's Report (PER)  that describes potential projects to address the concerns from the EPA and the Water Board.  This version includes information added after the Earthbound (Taylor) Farms conversation we had a few months ago.  After discussing it with the USDA, we might be splitting the PER into two grant (45%) and loan (55%) applications; one for water source, and one for the waste water project.
