Biography

Photo of Goleta Sanitary District

Much has changed in the 75 years plus since the Goleta Sanitary District was established in 1942. The United States was engaged in the Second World War, the community of Goleta had 1,500 residents, and much of the area was devoted to the agricultural production of citrus fruits and vegetables.

The members of the community at that time determined that it was necessary to form a special district solely focused on the protection of public health and the environment through the safe collection, treatment and disposal of its wastewater. The fledgling District applied to the U.S. Navy Department to connect its sewer lines to the Marine Air Base, located on the site of today’s Santa Barbara Municipal Airport. Plans were drawn to build a sewer system and treatment plant. In July 1951, the new plant opened for the first time to an enthusiastic community. Since that time, the Goleta Sanitary District has evolved as the community has grown and has always remained committed to its mission: to protect public health and the environment through responsible wastewater collection, treatment, and resource recovery to meet present and future community needs.

The District’s vision for the future is focused on sustainability through innovation based on new technologies to maximize water resource recovery, reuse and energy self-sufficiency.
