Document Description
The RWTP was commissioned in 1968 and is the oldest of the District's treatment plants. Numerous components of the RWTP are nearing the end of their useful lives. This, coupled with increasingly more stringent water quality and code requirements, make upgrades to the plant essential to ensure compliance with drinking water quality regulations and the reliability of its operation and the water supply for the western service area. The District proposes to improve the existing water treatment train at the aging Rinconada Water Treatment Plant (RWTP) to improve drinking water quality and reliability of operations. The Project proposes demolition/removal of many of the existing treatment facilities and processes and reconstruction of a new state-of-the-art water treatment facility within the existing water treatment plant property, while keeping the plant running at all times.
