The Camp Meeker Recreation and Park District is an independent Special District organized in 1931 under the California Public Resources Code, Div. 5, Chapter 4, Section 5780 (et seq).
The District’s purpose is to organize, promote, and conduct programs of community recreation including parks and open space, and other related services that improve the community’s quality of life.
The District’s areas of operation include Anderson Hall and related areas; Dutch Bill Creek beach (and areas adjacent to it) and the parking area; the Post Office trailer site; the District’s “office” and basketball court; Fire station land and other parcels.
The District was authorized to operate a “county water district” under provision 5787.22 in April 1994; and, LAFCO Resolution 2339 gave the District authority to develop and operate a wastewater system in August 1999. From time to time a sub-committee consisting of two Camp Meeker and two Occidental board members meet to discuss mutual concerns.

Have You Heard?
Permit Sonoma (formerly PRMD) will be hosting a public workshop on March 30, 2018, to discuss the revised Onsite Wastewater Treatment System (OWTS) Manual. The workshop will take place 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in Permit Sonoma’s Hearing Room, located at 2550 Ventura Ave, Santa Rosa.
The OWTS Manual provides the policy, procedural and technical details governing individual onsite wastewater treatment systems (also referred to as septic systems). Sonoma County’s OWTS Manual was revised and reviewed by a subcommittee of the Land Use Advisory Panel in February 2018. The revised OWTS Manual is now published for public review and comment and can be accessed at http://sonomacounty.ca.gov/PRMD/News/Revised-Onsite-Wastewater-Treatment-System-Manual/.
The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors will be considering the revised OWTS manual in an upcoming meeting. If the Board approves the revision, the County will then submit a revised Local Area Management Program and OWTS Manual to the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board.
