Document Description
The project would construct and operate the SNRC in the City of Highland, which would provide tertiary treatment to wastewater generated within East Valley Water District's (EVWD) service area and an Administration Center that would act as the operations facility. In addition to the SNRC, the project would include modification to EVWD's wastewater collection facilities in order to convey flows to the new recycled water treatment plant, as well as a treated water conveyance and discharge system. Currently, pursuant to an agreement, EVWD conveys wastewater for secondary treatment at the San Bernardino Water Reclamation Plant located in the City of San Bernardino. The SBWRP sends its treated wastewater for tertiary treatment at the Rapid Infiltration and Extraction (RIX) facility located in the City of Colton where it is discharged to the Santa Ana River (SAR). The proposed SNRC would produce disinfected tertiary recycled water (Title 22 quality water) for unrestricted use. The treated water would be discharged to City Creek, existing basins currently operated by the City of Redlands (Redlands Basins), to the East Twin Creek Spreading Grounds, other alternative recharge basins or to the Santa Ana River. This project would also include utilizing the existing SAR pipeline as a carrier pipe and refurbishing the groundwater wells near the Rialto channel to supply supplemental water in the SAR.
