Document Description
This document has been prepared to evaluate potential impacts of the water recycling facility. The City proposes to demolish the existing facilities at 950 Hopper Street and construct new treatment facilities, capable of producing tertiary treated recycled water, at the existing oxidation pond site at 4400 Lakeville Highway. The proposed treatment process uses extended aeration and oxidation ponds. Algae removal is provided by a wetlands treatment system within the existing oxidation pond site. In addition, up to 45 acres on the adjacent Parcels, northwest of the existing oxidation ponds, will be developed into polishing wetlands. These wetlands will be returned to the secondary effluent and will be open for public access and education. The effluent from the polishing wetlands will be returned to the plant site for reuse or discharge. Also, the project includes a set of improvements titled River Access Improvements that will provide public recreational and educational amenities on the adjacent Parcels northwest of the existing oxidation ponds. These improvements have been formulated at a conceptual level and environmental review is also at a conceptual level.
