Sewer lateral and mainline replacement in lower Linda Mar

... and along Palmetto business district.

Pacifica Tribune/Jane Northrop, Staff, 5/14/13.  "Sewer laterals replaced for free in lower Linda Mar."

Clean air, clean water-- some Linda Martians caught a wave
"....  The 254 laterals affected by this project fall under this mandatory category. The replacement will get a funding of $495,389 (254 x $1,950.35) from the city's $820,000 obligation.

....  The replacement of the 254 laterals will fulfill some of the city's obligations with the State Water Regional Control Board and with the settlement agreement with Our Children's Earth Foundation.

....  The remaining $103,001 will be used to replace the last 33 laterals along the gasoline tainted area of the downtown Palmetto business district."  Read article. 

Reference - From the City Council Agenda, 5/13/13.  Item 16 (b), RRFY2012-13_Site Plan.

Seems very fair the city should pay since they misused sewer tax funds for years until it became illegal for CA cities to do so around 2006. Had they used those funds for sewer system maintenance and repair instead of pet projects we would not be in the mess we're in now. It's a fair resolution but I'm sure being fair to taxpayers is not the reason the city is doing this.

So everyone else has to pay full bore minus the $1,000 the city refunds back?

Ha another big F U from city council.

Anon@5:01pm: I predict that soon after getting all the sewer laterals replaced, there will be a plethora of For Sale signs as Lower Linda Martians rush to escape the proposed sewer overflow project. Probably be a field day for lawyers as unsuspecting buyers find it wasn't disclosed that they bought into a potential cesspool.

Don't be s dramatic. They have those things all over San Francisco, and people seem to get by.

San Francisco is pretty well run. That can't be said of this dump by the sea. Sewage overflow basin in Linda Mar? Another step closer to being a genuine slum. Home values are recovering a bit, but if there's a way to deflate those values in Linda Mar and ruin our only halfway decent shopping center, you better believe this city will find it. But hey, we got trails instead of a well-maintained sewer system. Just wear a gas mask while you walk them.
