Document Description
The CDCR is proposing to construct an arsenic removal water treatment system at Kern Valley State Prison (KVSP). The purpose of the project is to remove arsenic from groundwater for KVSP's water supply system, which serves the entire prison complex, and to meet newly adopted arsenic regulations to reduce maximum contaminant levels for drinking water. The arsenic removal water treatment system equipment includes two reaction vessels, filter, associated valves and piping, chemical injection equipment, and equipment for backwash recovery. A new water treatment plan building would be constructed to house chemicals used in the treatment process, as well as the filtration system control panel, feed pump systems, air compressor, and chemical analyzers. Improvements would be made of the existing chlorination system.
