The committee represents a variety of Los Olivos residents and property owners who are concerned about our wastewater management future and quality of life.

Our goal is to ensure that the Los Olivos community self-determines the best way to address its unique wastewater challenges and to do so in a manner that protects water quality, maintains our rural character, safeguards property values and is economically responsible and feasible.

Our growing team of community members continues to work on behalf of all of Los Olivos to study and determine how best to address our wastewater needs.


With new, stricter water quality requirements from the State Regional Water Quality Control Board and the County’s Local Area Management Plan that affect all properties in the Special Problems Area (both commercial and residential), it is important to take steps now as a community that will help us avoid a divisive, decades long process like that of our neighbors to the north in Los Osos.


Each of us is committed to bringing our community together to find a solution for our common problem: managing our wastewater in a way that protects water quality, safeguards property values, maintains our neighborly character, and is economically responsible and feasible.
