Document Description
The City of Atwater is proposing the Atwater Wastewater (WWTP) Modification Project. The project would involve construction of tertiary-level treatment facilities and replacement of the existing chlorination/dechlorination disinfection system with a UV-light disinfection system; implementation of incremental increases to the treatment capacity of the WWTP from 6 million gallons per day (mgd) to no more than 12 mgd average dry-weather flow (DWF); and construction of an off-site biosolids transfer facility. The project would increase wastewater effluent discharges to the Atwater Drain, a water of the United States; and would allow expanded use of wastewater effluent for irrigation of agricultural lands.
