Perris Water Filtration Plant Rejection Recovery Facility

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Perris Water Filtration Plant (PWFP) currently treats Colorado River Water and State Project Water and supplies 20 million gallons per day (MGD) of potable water to the northern Perris and Moreno Valley areas within Eastern Municipal Water District's service area. However, the PWFP, routinely operating at 98% recovery, yields 0.4 MGD of reject flow. Eastern Municipal Water District proposes to construct a reject water recovery system within the PWFP for treatment of the reject water for reuse to mitigate reject treatment costs and optimize use of potable water sources. The PWFP Reject Recovery Facility will consist of the following components: - A 40 x 50 foot concrete pad - Three (3) 440-foot intake/discharge pipelines - Construction of the reject water recovery system on the concrete pad The proposed Reject Recovery Facility will be constructed entirely within the PWFP. The area within the PWFP to be affected by this project has already been leveled, graded and developed with PWFP facilities. Upon completion of the PWFP Reject Recovery Facility, the Perris Water Filtration Plant will continue to provide efficient, reliable potable water service to the Perris and Moreno Valley areas.
