We can probably handle more" Sampson held the most concern over the idea, or at least voiced his concerns the most, during the meeting. During peak summer times the sewer treatment plant is at 85 to 95 percent capacity, said Sampson. Though the number is not an exact figure, his concerns brought up the reason why the study was assembled in the first place, to stop the installation of desalination units that have not first been approved by the city. "The goal is to develop a permit and then to go after those who we know have them because we don't know what type of units they are or what their outputs are," said Ben Harvey, Avalon's city man- ager. Until a conditional permit is developed, Avalon residents only need a discharge permit to install a desalination unit that runs into the city's sewer system. That was what Sampson felt needed to be addressed. "There is no way that I would say it's a good idea to start put- ting in more desalination units in Avalon without understanding how we're going to process the by-product," said Sampson. "But if this is a study and we just need to understand what we're deal- ing with, then I can go ahead and agree with that." The plan is to see how much excess wastewater can be pro- cessed, develop a permit that resi- dents need to obtain to install a unit, and then charge a fee for every unit that is in place through- out the city. "We've been approached by several residents and hotel owners, and as we all know during phase two of water rationing, private desalination units would help us out considerably," said Jaich. 2 i Friday, December 5, 2Gbl THE CATAUNA.IIM, ANDER
