Maintenance District 22A, Oakhurst


MD-22A Alerts and Updates:



Maintenance District 22A, Oakhurst, is located in the community of Oakhurst on State Highways 41 and 49, in Madera County. The district provides sewer service to both commercial and residential developments.

The sewer system consists of gravity and force main collection systems, nine pumping stations, an oxidation ditch, chlorine disinfection, treated effluent storage pond, irrigation pumping stations, approximately 85 acres of treated effluent disposal sprayfields, and sprayfield irrigation runoff return pumping stations. The collection system recently underwent major rehabilitation including pipe repairs, new force main to the treatment plant, new gravity main river crossing, new main lift station, and replacement or repair to several manholes.

Two original sewage pumping stations near the Fresno River at Road 426 and Chapel Hill are in fair condition now, but will eventually need to be rehabilitated. The old main lift station at State Highway 41 has been abandoned as part of the collection system upgrade project. The new main pumping station, which pumps approximately 90% of the daily plant flow, has the capacity to pump approximately 1,000,000 gallons of wastewater per day.

Of the three small pumping stations that serve apartment complexes along Victoria Lane, two are in need of rehabilitation due to the corrosive effects of sewer gasses. The pumping station serving Enterprise Center is in fair condition. Also in fair condition is the pumping station on Redbud Drive at the river. Requirements to modify the force main and lift station along the Redbud collection line will be placed on developers to accommodate the anticipated increase in flows as growth occurs. A back-up generator will also be considered.

Reconstruction of the wastewater treatment plant was recently completed, although it has not yet been certified by the state. The new facility will provide for more advanced treatment capable of removing nitrates from the wastewater. Once certified, it will also have a septage receiving station to treat septic tank pumpings from Eastern Madera County. Part of the overall plan for this facility includes the ability to return treated and reclaimed wastewater to the community for reuse in the irrigation of large, open space parcels.

The system has generator backup at the main pumping station, treatment plant and sprayfield run off return pumping stations. The district also has trailer-mounted generators available to run the remote pumping stations, but not the irrigation pumping stations. The collection system is equipped with alarms and auto dialers to notify district personnel in the event of an emergency.
