Document Description
The proposed project would replace the Palo Alto Regional Water Quality Control Plant's (RWQCP) existing chlorine disinfection facility with an ultraviolet (UV) disinfection facility which would be built adjacent to the existing Chlorination Station building. The new UV facility would consist of a concrete channel structure approximately 80 feet long and 45 feet wide, sitting 11 feet above grade. The UV facility and the associated lamp washdown and cleaning area would be permanently covered by an unenclosed structure that would be approximately 30 feet tall. The project includes the installation of photo voltaic panels on the structure's roof top. The new UV facility would eliminate the use of all ammonia hydroxide, gaseous sulfur dioxide, and chlorine gas that is used for disinfection.
