With the use of the Micromedia system inoperable, in August 2009 the APUA diverted up to 1.2 million gallons per day of secondary-treated wastewater flows from the Biolac system to the Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority's (VVWRA) treatment facility for a short period of time to complete repair of a dislodged plugged pipe. The remaining flows were discharged to the four percolation ponds at the Adelanto Wastewater Treatment Plan. Until recently all wastewater was routed through the Biolac system then either diverted to the VVWRA's treatment facility or released into the APUA ponds. However, on July 28, 2010, APUA stopped diverting secondary-treated flows and began diverting 800,000 gallons per day of untreated wastewater influent to VVWRA.
