Baca Grande Water and Sanitation District Updated Master Plan (click to read the report) Master Plan in pdf
Element Engineering was retained by the Baca Grande Water and Sanitation District (BGWSD or district) to
complete a water and wastewater master plan focusing on project prioritizations for the upcoming five
years.

This master plan is intended to provide an in-depth review of the district’s infrastructure and a
roadmap of water and sanitary sewer capital improvement projects, prioritized by need (both regulatory
and structural) that are recommended for completion within the next five years.

A Water and Wastewater Master Plan was compiled for the district by JVA, Inc. in August 2019. This Water
& Sewer Master Plan Update utilizes information from the 2019 master plan, provides additional updated
details, and focuses on recommendations for the system within the next five years.

Don’t clog your drain!

Pouring cooking fats, oils and greases down the drains can cause serious and expensive pipe blockages.
By not putting any unneeded strain on all your drains and pipes, you can avoid unplanned visits from your plumber, not just on the holidays but year-round.

Clogged pipes and sewer backups are never a good surprise plus they can do significant damage to your home, neighborhood, and the environment.

Limiting contaminants and unwanted items from entering our pipes ensures a clean and properly functioning sewer system, which benefits us all. Minimizing grease and fats in the drain helps us control costs and cost increases to our customers. 

DO NOT FLUSH!

Here are a few recommendations to consider regarding the wastewater treatment plant:

Please note: Some wipes are labeled “flushable” but should not be flushed down your toilet. These can
cause blockages in your sewer pipes and cause wastewater to back up into your house causing additional
hygiene issues and potentially structural water damage.

COVER YOUR FLUSH!
Always avoid putting these items down a drain...
