Oakdale City Council will hold a special meeting on Monday, Jan. 9 at the Oakdale Wastewater Treatment Plant. Council and members of the public will take a tour of the facility to view progress on plant upgrades.
Upgrades to the wastewater treatment facility began in 2007 when Oakdale’s quarterly water monitoring revealed fecal coliform contamination in the water. The state issued a notice of violation and the city started the process of upgrading the wastewater treatment facility to prevent re-occurrences in the future. The project bid came in at $12 million and construction began in fall 2009.
The tour is open to the public and is classified as a special meeting of the Oakdale City Council with a public comments period before the tour. The meeting will begin at noon at the Oakdale Wastewater Treatment Plant, 9700 Liberini Avenue.
