DGM Kanetis noted that the general feedback from Cal/OSHA VPP has been positive thus far.

 

AGM Mouawad noted that LAFCO will be hosting a meeting at EMWD’s offices to review draft financial analysis results associated with the Murrieta FMSR study.  Representatives from the City of Murrieta, WMWD, RCWD, and EMWD will be participating in the workshop. 

 

AGM Wall noted that the Inland Empire Energy Center is now offline and are actively beginning the process of deconstructing the facility down to 12 feet below grade, which has freed up a substantial amount of recycled water. District staff has reached out to various customers and reallocated an additional 2,700-acre feet of recycled water. He also noted that the media for the biofilter at the Perris Valley Regional Water Reclamation plant is now in port and must clear customs. Once the media has cleared customs, the project will be ready to commence.
