Document Description
The project consists of the adoption of the proposed "Waste Water Treatment Master Plan" for the City of Sanger's Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) and the associated upgrade and expansion and operation of the facility through the year 2035. The project site is located about 1.5 miles southeast of the center of the City of Sanger (City) and west of the Kings River. New improvements include the following: construction of a headworks to replace the existing domestic headworks, a parshall flume for influent flow metering, two mechanical bar screens, two aerated grit chambers, an anoxic basin, an influent pump station, an oxidation ditch and associated facilities, two 55-foot diameter secondary clarifiers, a Return Activated Sludge (RAS) pump station disinfection facilities including a duplicate of the existing tank and metering pumps, a chlorine contact basin, and a second centrifuge. In addition, new support facilities include: Control/Administration Building, expansion of maintenance building, a new standby generator, upgrade of existing electrical system, and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) workstations through the plant. Two of the existing effluent pumps would be replaced with larger pumps. A second domestic force main (18-inch diameter) to transport treated effluent to the Lincoln Ponds will be constructed parallel to the existing force main. The route for the second pipeline will be 4 miles long and is within the right-of-way for Newmark Avenue. A second electrical transmission line may also be necessary and will run parallel with the existing transmission line along Ross and North Avenues. The proposed project would expand the WWTP to treat an Average Day Maximum Month Flow (ADMMF) of 5.3 million gallons per day (mgd).
