CWP resilience efforts featured in December’s Sustainable Sunnyvale

Check out the Sunnyvale Cleanwater Program’s feature in December’s Sustainable Sunnyvale Newsletter for its efforts to improve resilience at the City’s Water Pollution Control Plant. Critical upgrades, such as updated and more stringent building and structural codes, will ensure the wastewater treatment plant will be strong and resilient, especially against earthquakes.

One example includes planned improvements to the Plant’s chlorine tanks. A condition assessment on the chlorine contact tanks in 2018 that demonstrated a seismic retrofit was necessary to ensure the tanks meet modern safety standards for its current and future operations.

The Cleanwater Program will continue to provide project and program information through the Sustainable Sunnyvale newsletter so make sure to sign-up for updates!
