MORRO BAY — The City of Morro Bay recently held a tour of its new Water Reclamation Facility treatment plant site for City officials and the media, walking about the nearly 30-acre site to see the over $70 million plant’s progress.

Updates, which included the underground utility work for a new administration building that is expected to be completed sometime in January, were shared with the attendees.

They also saw the innards of what will be two bio-reactor basins that stand some 25-feet tall, but, after being tested for leaks, will mostly be buried with just a few feet above final grade.

And while the site already has some 20-feet of fill, burying the basins will require much more of the hillside to be dug up and spread over the plant site.
