City staff will deliver a report on efforts to address water discoloration, including construction of a new, $2.7 million treatment facility, among other items on the City Council’s Oct. 17 meeting agenda.

The water issue has been a key focus of the City since April, when discolored water was first reported in some residences. The presentation will discuss solutions that have been implemented to address the issue, including the new treatment facility at Wilson Reservoir that is expected to eliminate the discoloration.

The Council will also hear from representatives of Southern California Edison (SCE) on work being done to strengthen the local electricity infrastructure and provide increased energy reliability.

The Council is also expected to give final approval to the City’s first public arts initiative. The program will set fees on development for the creation of public arts, establish a five-member Public Arts Commission, and declare South Pasadena a “creative and innovative City.” The Council gave preliminary approval to the program on Oct. 3.

The City Council meeting will begin at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 17 in the Council Chambers, 1424 Mission St., South Pasadena. Please visit the City’s web site to view the full agenda and staff reports.
