The City of Morro Bay is continuing to experience
modest growth and redevelopment in response to quality of life, economic
development and prosperity of the region. To keep pace with the system demands
generated by this growth, Morro Bay has continued to expand its water and
wastewater treatment and infrastructure capacity. With this increasing need to
efficiently manage and conserve the City's water resources, Morro Bay has
adopted an integrated approach to its water, wastewater and stormwater master
planning. This is also known as
“OneWater Morro Bay” and an online copy can be found at http://morrobayca.gov/DocumentCenter/View/12500/OneWater-Plan-Final.
The OneWater approach Morro Bay used was a
process of planning and designing infrastructure in a coordinated manner to
effectively and efficiently maximize the use of available resources. The use of
these resources is governed by an established legal, regulatory, and
institutional framework that guided the development of the master plans.
this first phase of implementation of the City’s water distribution system
improvements include Engineering (Planning/Environmental, along with Preliminary
Design) for improvements necessary to increase the storage volume in the Nutmeg
pressure zone and eliminate the need for the Vashon Booster Pump Station.
The selection of consultant will be based
