Document Description
The proposed project consists of the upgrade of the VVWRA Westside Water Reclamation Plant (WWRP) located at 20111 Shay Rd. in the City of Victorville, San Bernardino County, California. This Addendum, combined with the original Initial Study and Final MND package, serves as the basis for this second tier environmental review of VVWRA's decision to consider installing a biogas energy recovery unit, specifically a Fuel Cell, that will utilize the biogas to generate electricity. Because of the type of energy recovery unit and location of the facility was not described and analyzed in the original MND documentation, this Addendum has been prepared. In summary, the fueld cell power plant will deliver electricity to the WWTP at lower cost; it will reduce the emissions of biogas at the WWTP because it will no longer be flared (combusted) with air emissions dicharges to the atmosphere; the only input is water from existing sources on the project site; output consists of electricity, heat (heated water that can be used at the WWTP) and water discharge; the fuel cell power plant site consists of an graded and compacted site adjacent to existing facilities as shown in Fig 5; the RO unit will be periodically regenerated; and a scrubber will remove any pollutants from the incoming biogas, which will also be periodically regenerated. The fuel cell power plant will require about six-twelve months to install and it will be installed regardless of the timing for plant modifications.
