Document Description
Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) is proposing to install up to five groundwater extraction wells in four areas of the Western San Jacinto Groundwater Basin, and construct a reverse osmosis desalination water treatment plant (desalter plant) at one of three locations: Perris Valley, Skiland, or Sun City. The groundwater extraction wells and desalter plant would be connected through a network of 12 to 24-inch pipelines. If the Perris Valley or Skiland desalter site is selected, a 12 to 18-inch brine conveyance pipeline would be constructed from the desalter plant site to an existing connection at EMWD's Sun City water treatment facility. The specific location of pipeline alignments would be determined after selection of the desalter plant and well site locations. All pipeline alignments would be located within existing right-of-way of project area roadways.
