At the Santa Cruz Water Commission meeting on Monday, August 27, the Water Commission heard the results of the pipe loop study of water to be transferred to SqCWD from Santa Cruz.

Once again, the consultants reported that the test had resulted in a very favorable outcome and that the water could be transferred as it comes from the water treatment plant without Orthophosphate.

The next step is implementation, which both Santa Cruz and SqCWD hope will take place on November 1, 2018. Taj Dufour, head engineer for SqCWD, and Kevin Crossley, engineer for Santa Cruz Water District, both spoke of the intent for water to flow this November.
