Link to Project Overview

You may have noticed the recent construction activity on GCSD’s Burnham Strip property. In
2020, the Sewer Authority Mid-Coastside (SAM) approved a contract for the construction of an
additional underground wet weather storage facility in the strip. The Granada Community
Services District (GCSD), as a member agency of SAM, was part of the project approval and
also granted an easement to SAM for the installation and operation of the SAM facility.

SAM’s new 200,000 wet weather storage facility is an addition to their existing 200,000 gallon
storage facility built in 2012. These facilities give SAM the ability to hold sewage and the excess
rain water which infiltrates into the sewer system during big storm events. The new storage will
go in adjacent to the existing storage, and the project is expected to be completed by late Spring.
The only visible signs of the underground tanks will be a few maintenance covers located on the
surface. The plans for the proposed future park take these features into consideration in the
design. The map above shows the location of the underground storage.
