Document Description
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is considering authorizing the expenditure of funds awarded to the City of Moreno Valley to analyze the existing Box Springs Mutual Water Company (BSMWC) water system and determine the adequacy of the existing system, determine any necessary system improvements and the associated costs of the improvements to comply with the current City of Moreno Valley General Plan and Land Use designations (ultimate development). Presently, the existing BSMWC water system is not up to City fire protection standards and codes. Furthermore, due to age and deterioration of the existing system, there is a potential for pipeline failure; thus, leading to a shutdown of the entire system and water will not be delivered to the public. The Water Infrastructure Analysis Study (WIAS) proposes two water system alternatives based on the additional water supply and improvements to water system facilities including storage, pipeline and pumping. Alternative No. 1 consists of maintaining the current system operational scheme, with additional water supply from additional groundwater extraction, and upgrading all existing BSMWC facilities (pipelines, reservoir, and hydropneumatic booster station). Alternative No. 2 consists of connecting to the Western Municipal Water District water system for both water supply and fire suppression needs. The National Environmental Policy Act also requires analysis of the No Action or No Project Alternative. The No Action Alternative would not adopt or implement the EWMPU and the WIAS would not be utilized to address the inadequacy of the existing system.
