Agricultural / A-2-40 for the Water Treatment Plant Site

Document Description
The Turlock Irrigation District's proposed Regional Surface Water Supply Project would construct facilities to treat and deliver Tuolumne River water for use by communities that currently rely exclusively on groundwater for urban water needs. These communities include Ceres, Hughson, Keyes, south Modesto and Turlock. The proposed project would construct a water treatment plant near the intersection of Geer Road and Hatch Road, which is near Hughson in unincorporated Stanislaus County. The project would deliver up to 42.5 million gallons per day of treated water to the participating communities by constructing new pipelines between the proposed plant and those communities within existing roadways and canal rights-of-way. Diversion from the river would be accomplished using facilities already constructed and planned under TID's approved infiltration Gallery Project at Special Run. The water treatment plant would be constructed on approximately 15-20 acres of a 50-acre parcel that is currently fully developed as orchard, and is located south of the Tuolumne River and east of Geer Road. The proposed pipelines will be installed in existing canal and roadway easements between the treatment plant and participating communities. The participating communities will be responsible to construct "terminal facilities" to store and deliver water provided by TID.
