Two neighbors who live on either side of the CalWater property on Stadler Drive have protested the water company's plans to install the new large tank, which will be used to store emergency water. CalWater says even with the new tank, it will fall short of its emergency requirements and it will need other water storage sites.
The neighbors say the tank is too tall and too big, and that the water company is misusing state laws that give streamlined approvals to projects that address an emergency, such as wildfire danger.
Also on the agenda is a 30 mph speed limit for Runnymede Road and changes to the town's sewer ordinance to more closely align with the county's regulations. One major change would be to allow pumping, rather than using gravity, to move effluent to the primary drain field.
