Central Plant Reclaimed Water/Capitol Park Irrigation Project

Document Description
To meet the goals established in Executive Orders B-18-12 and B-29-15, the Department of General Services proposes to use water reclaimed from the Central Plant operations to irrigate Capitol Park. Prior to implementation of Drought irrigation restrictions, the State purchased potable water from the City to irrigate Capitol Park. In addition to re-using water efficiently, the project will reduce the fees to purchase irrigation water as well as reduce the fees to discharge water into the municipal sewer system. The project consists of installation of a 100,000 gallon underground water storage tank and a chemical feed system to adjust the water pH and control biological growth in the tank; installation of pumps, power, and controls at the Central Plant; and installation of a new 4 inch purple PVC pipeline connecting the Central Plant to Capitol Park using the existing utilidor. Project components in Capitol Park include installation of approximately 2,900 linear feet of new direct buried 4 inch purple PVC pipeline along the 10th Street, N Street and 16th Street sidewalks at a depth of 18-24 inches; installation of mixing valves at two irrigation meters and installation of backflow preventers to ensure that reclaimed water does not enter potable water lines. Informational signage will be installed at each of the parks approximately 20 entry-ways.
