Document Description
The City of Atwater is proposing the Atwater WastewaterTreatment Plant (WWTP) Project. The project includes decommissioning and demolishing the existing WWTP site on Commerce Avenue, except for the influent pump station; constructing a new WWTP and associated facilities at a new site (Bert Crane Road site) and implementing upgrades to produce disinfected tertiary effluent; installing influent force mains to convey wastewater from the existing influent pump station to the new WWTP, and installing a discharge pipeline from the new WWTP to a new discharge point at the Atwater/Peck Drain, a water of the U.S. The proposed project would include a phased expansion of the capacity of the new WWTP up to 8 million gallons per day, average dry-weather flow to accommodate planned growth within the City and to serve other prospective development surrounding the city.
