Document Description
The District is proposing to renovate and expand certain portions of its existing wastewater treatment facility. The City of Indio is currently experiencing rapid residential and commercial growth. This growth is resulting in enormous pressure on the wastewater treatment facility to quickly expand its current rated capacity of 8.5 mgd. Estimates indicated that the facility will likely reach and surpass its current rated capacity of 8.5 mgd between 2007 and 2008. To address this urgent need to increase capacity, the District is planning to expand the existing activated sludge treatment process. The District's proposed plan also provides for adequate biosolid treatment and disposal, compliance with all regulatory requirements, and utilization of digester gas as an on-site energy source, while maintaining reasonable plant operation costs.
