South Land Park sewer Repairs

A sewage facility near Fruitridge Road and South Land Park Drive is undergoing repair work by the City of Sacramento and Sacramento Regional County Sanitation District, also known as Regional San.

The facility is owned by the Regional San but operated and maintained by the City's Department of Utilities.

Repairs of the facility — which are separate from odor issues that residents recently experienced — will be done in phases and are expected to take up to 10 months.

Anyone that experiences unpleasant odors can report them the City at 3-1-1.
