Water Reclamation Master Plan for Treatment Storage and Disposal
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
The EIR will evaluate 3 alternatives for water reuse involving a combination of agricultural irrigation and/or Geysers reuse for steam generation. Proposed facilities for each alternative include new conveyance pipelines and storage. The Town has recently completed and adopted a revised General Plan. Based upon the General Plan buildout projection, the Town has completed an updated Water Reclamation Master Plan for Treatment, Storage and Disposal (1999 Master Plan). In developing alternatives for the water reclamation system, the 1999 Master Plan examined eleven alternatives and subalternatives to meet a projected wastewater flow of 3.04 mgd at buildout, representing an increase of approximately 1.6 mgd from existing flows. Three alternatives were selected for further consideration. The three can be characterized as primarily reuse options for tertiary treated effluent not discharged to Mark West Creek under the Towns's existing NPDES permit.
Altenative 1C. This alternative would include construction of storage and distribution facilities to provide for irrigation disposal of remaining effluent.
Alternative 4I. This alternative would include full use of available Geysers Recharge capacity (1.25 mgd).
Alternative 4X. This alternative provides a middle ground between the two above alternatives.
