Document Description
PCWA is approving an addendum that addresses project modifications to the existing Foothill Water Treatment Plant. This addendum addresses Project modifications, which were evaluated as a 60 MGD expansion in the 1999 Foothill Water Treatment Plant Optimization Project Environmental Impact Report (1999 EIR). The Project as modified would increase the capacity of the plant from 60 million gallons per day to 63 MGD. This would consist of improving two process trains at Foothill Water Treatment Plant (WTP) which were installed in 1991. The improvements will replace the flocculation, sedimentation, and sludge handling systems and provide additional 3 MGD is intended to serve development in western Placer County with water from the PCWA's Foothill WTP in the interim period until the Ophir WTP is constructed. An EIR for the Ophir WTP, previously called the Foothill Phase II WTP and Pipeline project, was prepared in 2005. The 2005 EIR evaluated supplying treated water supply in accordance with its capital plan which evaluated long-term water supply demands for existing and future customers resulting from planned regional growth in western Placer County.
