FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Carmel Valley Manor will Replace its Failing Septic System to Benefit Residents
and much of Carmel Valley
Mandated by the Monterey County Health Department, the project, which has been in the planning stage for years, will be completed in two phases, each taking about six months
Carmel Valley, California – April 25th, 2023 – Carmel Valley Manor is Monterey County’s only Life Plan Community for seniors. The non-profit residential community is now undertaking a major sewer improvement project to replace its 60-year-old failing septic system and will connect to the Carmel Area Wastewater District system. The eight-million-dollar project, $6 million of which is construction costs, is being funded by Carmel Valley Manor and spearheaded by the Carmel Area Wastewater District. The project has been in the planning stage for several years and has been approved by all local and State agencies. Completing the new sewer system will benefit other businesses and organizations along the route, and the sewer line will be large enough to accommodate existing residences and businesses as far away as Carmel Valley Ranch. In addition, the sewage will be treated by the Carmel Area Wastewater District and reused to irrigate local golf courses such as Pebble Beach.
“First and foremost, we want the local community to know that Carmel Valley Manor’s massive undertaking in replacing this failing sewer system may inconvenience some motorists on Carmel Valley Road during the first six months of construction, but the new system will benefit many residents when completed,” according to Jay Zimmer, President and CEO of Carmel Valley Manor, “We’ll work diligently to communicate the construction schedule and impact on motorists so it can go as smoothly as possible.”
Construction will begin this winter and is estimated to take a year. Traffic on Carmel Valley Road will have some disruption during construction but will continue to have two-way access – a construction schedule will be posted for public access.
Below is the latest schedule for work that affects Carmel Valley Road. Schedule is subject to change due to weather or other factors:
1. Timing and duration of main sewer installation on Carmel Valley Road:
2. Installation of Sewer Laterals on Carmel Valley Road:
No construction will occur during Car Week in August.
Upon completion, the new sewer system will not only serve the over 400 residents, staff and guests at Carmel Valley Manor, but it will also serve the Monterey County Regional Fire District, Carmelo School, All Saints Day School, Quail Lodge, and numerous residences and businesses in the Valley.
