RRWPC Newsletter, April 2023: Sewage Spills and RRCSD Repairs

RRCSD illegally discharged millions of gallons of raw sewage over 17 years….Russian River County Sanitation District (RRCSD) illegally spilled almost 1.5 million gallons of raw or partially treated sewage into the Russian River during big storms taking place between 2007 and July, 2017. This is five times more than all other dischargers combined, including Santa Rosa and the Subregional system (Rohnert Park, Cotati, and Sebastopol).  Then in late 2017, and February and March, 2019, sanitary sewer overflows caused another 2.3 million gallons to be spilled.
