About the Goleta Sanitary District:
The Goleta Sanitary District was created in 1942 to provide wastewater collection and treatment services for the Goleta Valley. Today the District’s 132-mile-long network of underground pipes deliver approximately 4 million gallons of waste water to the District’s award winning treatment plant every day. At the facility wastewater is treated and cleaned to very high standards by certified staff before being reused for irrigation or discharged safely into the ocean. The District is governed by a 5 member elected Board and is committed to protecting public health and the environment through state of the art treatment process and the delivery of cost effective public services.
The District provides wastewater treatment services for its own customers as well as four other public agencies: Goleta West Sanitary District, University of California at Santa Barbara, UCSB, City of Santa Barbara Municipal Airport and certain facilities of Santa Barbara County.
Goleta Sanitary District is located at 1 William Moffett Place, across from the Santa Barbara Airport. Contact us at (805) 967-4519 or learn more at: GoletaSanitary.org.
