Document Description
The proposed project consists of installation of a new granulated activated carbon (GAC) water treatment system for removal of methyl tertiary-butyl ether (MTBE) at the Mills Plant. The Mills Plant receives groundwater from four Crescenta Valley Water District (CVWD) groundwater wells (Wells 1, 5, 7, and 9) for chlorination treatment and pumping water into the distribution system. In 2004, MTBE was detected at low levels in CVWD's groundwater wells. In August 2006, Well 7 was shutdown due to MTBE concentrations exceeding the primary and secondary maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) as established by the California Department of Health Services (DHS). CVWD desires to install a GAC water treatment system to remove MTBE at the Mills Plant to bring Well 7 back into service.
