Work is underway at Park Avenue West and Rock Road next to Marshall Park in Ontario, on a project to contain excessive sanitary sewer water. Excavators have been clearing the land for a 97 by 25-foot above-ground tank that would store 1.2-million gallons. Service-Safety Director Roger Heston says during heavy rainfalls, the Rock Road lift station becomes overburdened and storm water gets into the sanitary sewers. When this occurs, the city is forced to pump the raw sewage and storm water into the nearby creek to help prevent sewer backups. That's prohibited by the E.P.A. which mandated Ontario solve the problem by doing this project. The city is paying for the $2.3-million tank from reserve funds. It should be completed by the end of the year.
