RIX Facility Recycled Water Use Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Document Description
The City of San Bernardino currently discharges approximately 40 million gallons per day (mgd) from the Regional Rapid Infiltration and Extraction (RLX) Facility to the Santa Ana River. The City of San Bernardino, in conjunction with Western Water Company, intends to market the excess tertiary effluent from the RIX facility (currently estimated to be about 15 MGD, or 16,794 acre-feet per year) and sell the excess effluent for long-term beneficial uses to water users in the region. For the purpose of this environmental document, the proposed action is a Recycled Water Sale Project, of up to 18,000 acre-feet of RIX facility tertiary treated effluent, to potential water suppliers within the southern California region and support infrastructure required to deliver the recycled water to purchasers.
