EMWD is in the final planning stages of its Moreno Valley Groundwater Development Program. The purpose of the program is to develop approximately 2,000 acre-feet per year of groundwater resources from the North Perris Groundwater Management Zone in the Moreno Valley area. The first phase would include drilling and testing a well. It would also be necessary to construct treatment facilities, equip a potable water well, and construct a pump station and related infrastructure. Secondly, a replacement well is planned to be drilled approximately 400 feet due east of Eastern's former Well 44. As part of the replacement project, Wells 43 and 44 would be abandoned in accordance with State and County regulations.
Additionally, in the future it would also be necessary to construct pipelines to convey treated water to the existing potable water system. Treated water would either be conveyed to the 1764 Pressure Zone (PZ) and boosted to the 1860 PZ or conveyed to the 1860 PZ and boosted to the 1967 PZ. Various pipeline corridors for both options were considered. Limitations include the availability of large diameter transmission pipelines (>12") and a desire to avoid streets with heavy traffic.
