The Oro Loma Sanitary District (OLSD) proposes to implement the Oro Loma Wet Weather Equalization and Ecotone Demonstration Project [ 28MB] (proposed project), which would include a multipurpose wet‐weather equalization facility that will include both a treatment wetland and an upland ecotone slope for polishing of treated wastewater. The facility will accommodate infrequent peak wet-weather flows, and provide an opportunity to pilot several adaptation strategies related to sea level rise, water quality protection, and infrastructure sustainability. The proposed project is located near the eastern shoreline of San Francisco Bay, approximately 4 miles south of the Oakland International Airport.
