The VVWRA in collaboration with its member agency, the Town of Apple Valley, has developed a strategic goal of upgrading the sewer and treatment systems within the Victor Valley in order to optimize the efficient re-use of reclaimed water. The proposed project would re-route part of the existing sewage collection system in the Town of Apple Valley. It consists of construction and installation of ~2.89 miles of 30 inch sewer line from the existing Nanticoke Road sewer pump station to the existing Otoe Road sewer pump station next to Brewster Park. The Authority proposes to implement the project to ensure systems essential to water reuse are available at a long-term cost and energy savings over what are currently in place. The Nanticoke pump station is nearing the end of its useful life and either needs to be renovated or replaced with a functionally equivalent alternative (a facility that will help convey sewage to a wastewater treatment plant).
Implementing the proposed project would be more cost effective and energy efficient than renovating the existing pump station when comparing the total capital improvement and long-term operational costs of each facility. The cost to construct the proposed gravity line is roughly equivalent to the sum of the repair, renovation, operation, and maintenance costs for 5 yrs at the pump station. The pipeline is anticipated to be used well beyond this 5 yr period. The routine maintenance and operation of the proposed project would cost less than the operation and maintenance of the proposed project. The proposed gravity sewer would also be more energy efficient than the pump station as gravity would be utilized to provide the energy for moving sewage rather than a pump run with electricity or diesel fuel.
