Document Description
SCWA proposes to provide for beneficial use, including groundwater recharge, of 31,500 AFA of remediated water from existing and proposed Aerojet General Corporation and McDonnell Douglas Corporation (MDC)/Boeing Groundwater Extraction and Treatment (GET) facilities. Remediated groundwater from GET facilities is proposed to be conveyed to four discharge locations that flow into the American River, including Alder Creek, Buffalo Creek, Boyd Station Channel and Rossmoor Drain. Commingled river water and remediated water is proposed to be diverted from the American River at the Folsom South Canal and the City of Sacramento's Fairbairn Treatment Plant, and from the Sacramento River at the Freeport Regional Water Authority's Water Diversion Structure at Freeport. Water would be retained in the Sacramento Central Groundwater Basin area both by recharge or treated to potable standards for consumptive use. Some of the water is proposed to be used as a replacement water supply for SCWA, Golden States and Cal-Am lost supplies due to contaminated wells, and some is proposed to be used to supply new development within the water purveyors' service areas. The project would also provide 5,000 AFA of water to the Cosumnes River via the Folsom South Canal for environmental benefits, including improved salmon passage.
