Document Description
Note: 1 CD SBMWD is proposing the Project to reduce its dependence on imported water and to establish a reliable, sustainable source of clean water. The proposed Project will treat effluent from the San Bernardino Water Reclamation Plant to a quality approved for recharge as set by the California Department of Public Health and the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board. The treated effluent will be conveyed to the Waterman Basins and the East Twin Creek Spreading Grounds. Recycled water spread at these facilities will artificially recharge the Bunker Hill Groundwater Basin and, more specifically, the Bunker Hill a Management Zone, as described in the Water Quality Control Plan for the SAR Watershed (Basin Plan). The Project will also treat a side stream of SBWRP effluent to a quality approved for direct use and convey the tertiary treated recycled water to customers that can benefit from a non-potable water supply, and would also involve various improvements at the RIX facility and a future connection of the RIX facility to the Chino Basin and the Inland Empire Utilities Agency's non-potable system. The project's use of treated wastewater for direct reuse and recharge would result in a reduction in the volume of treated effluent that is presently discharged to the Santa Ana River.
