Document Description
The resin ion exchange unit will be located within the existing graded and fenced Plant 40 compound. The compound is located on 3rd Street about 500 feet east of Palm Avenue in the City of Highland, San Bernardino County. The sight is near the southeast corner of Section 4 of TIS, R3W SBM as shown on the USGS - Redlands Quadrangle 7.5 minute series topographic. Water produced at EVWD's Well 40A occasionally contains uranium concentrations that exceed the state standard of 30 ug/l. The proposed project is the construction and operation of the Well 40A Resin Ion Exchange system. Water from Well 40A will be pumped through the resin ion exchange unit where the uranium will bind with the resin, thereby allowing the water leaving the unit to meet the California Department of Health Services Drinking Water standards for use in the EVWD's system. During the initial start-up of the facility, water from the treatment unit will be pumped into mobile storage tanks and sampled. At this time it is forecast that water pumped to the tanks will be delivered to the District's surface water treatment facility located adjacent to City Creek just northerly of Highland Avenue for treatment and blending. It is also possible that the test pump water, if of acceptable quality, will be discharged as surface flow from the site.
