The Malibu Civic Center Wastewater Treatment Facility (CCWTF) Project includes development of a centralized wastewater treatment facility in the Malibu Civic Center area that will treat, reuse, and/or dispose of wastewater flows from properties in the Civic Center. The Project is in response to regulatory actions taken by the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board and the State Water Resources Control Board to prohibit discharges from onsite wastewater discharge systems (OWDS) in the Civic Center area, and to ban new OWDS, based on a phased schedule.
Wastewater and Recycled Water Rates
The proposed Wastewater and Recycled Water Rates are being developed to provide a fair and equitable method of obtaining revenue to maintain the wastewater and recycled water systems. At the June 26, 2017, the City Council approved the 2017 Wastewater and Recycled Water Rates Study. This study outlines how the proposed rates were calculated. At this time, only those developed parcels within the Phase 1 area will be charged for these services. It is anticipated that the Civic Center Wastewater Treatment Facility will be completed in early 2018. These rates will be charged once the wastewater and recycled water service is provided to the customer.
At its Regular meeting on January 25, 2016, the City Council formed Assessment District 2015-1 (Civic Center Wastewater Treatment Facility – Phase 1), following ballot approval by a majority of the impacted property owners in the Civic Center. The Council also adopted Resolution No. 16-07 approving the Assessment Engineer’s Report, in which the individual parcel assessments are determined.
