OPERATIONS MODIFICATION

The District’s first priority is the safety and welfare of the public, our staff and families. Due to the ongoing developments as a result of COVID-19 (“Coronavirus”), the Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District is modifying its operations effective immediately until further notice.

  • All non-essential meetings and office visits will be closed to the public.
  • Public tours and events are canceled.
  • The Board of Directors Meeting will take place in person as scheduled. The meeting is open to the public with social distancing and masking requirements enforced.
  • All deliveries are routed to the north gate entry at 2439 Cordelia Road.

Normal wastewater operations and maintenance will continue uninterrupted.  Should there be any urgent matters with your sewer, please call the numbers listed on our Contact Us (page).  We remain committed to our mission of protecting public health and the environment.

The District will continue to monitor the situation on a national, state and local level. We will keep our site updated as the situation evolves.

Proclamation – Water Professionals Appreciation Week sm

October 2 – 10 is Water Professionals Appreciation Week

The Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District extends its sincere appreciation to the professionals that work to provide a critical service to Fairfield and Suisun City every day.

Water is the lifeblood of California.  Without safe water, no community and no sector of the economy – from tech, to manufacturing, to agriculture – can thrive.

THANK YOU to each and every one of our 57 dedicated wastewater professions!  Please join us in celebrating Water Professionals Appreciation Week!

See Press Release here.

No Litter in Toilet

During this challenging time, Sewer Maintenance staff is reporting a noticeable increase in non-flushables, paper towels, and plastic in the sewer system this week.  This is a friendly reminder that paper towels, wet wipes, baby wipes, cleaning wipes, cosmetic wipes, feminine hygiene products, and diapers should NEVER go in the toilet.  If it’s not human waste or toilet paper please don’t flush it!  Let’s keep our infrastructure working well!!

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

State and federal laws require all urbanized communities to collect and treat their domestic and industrial wastes. Proper treatment and disposal of sewage is essential to protect public health and prevent pollution of the environment.

WATER RECYCLING

THE DISTRICT HAS BEEN PRODUCING AND DISTRIBUTING RECYCLED WATER SINCE 1974

Nearly 400 million gallons of treated wastewater is reused each year for non-edible crop irrigation and dust control.

There are 2 types of recycled water listed in Title 22 of the California code of regulations:  RESTRICTED USE and UNRESTRICTED USE.  The District currently produces RESTRICTED USE Secondary 23 Recycled water, which can be used for irrigation of non-food crops, as well as freeway landscaping and pasture.   RESTRICTED USE Recycled Water can only be used at times and locations where public access is limited.

The District is unable to distribute recycled water to the general public at this time, because our treatment facility is not designed to meet the water quality standards for unrestricted public use.

Here at the District, we continue to investigate and implement approaches that conserve and protect our precious water resources.  Treated wastewater is used to irrigate vegetation on the treatment plant site and the treated water we deliver to the Suisun Marsh protects and enhances the natural environment.
