Document Description
Coachella Water Authority proposes to undertake the Chromium-6 water Facilities Improvement Project in order to comply with recently passed state of CA regulations. With implementation of the project, five wells will be upgraded with chromium-6 removal treatment technology. The proposed project also includes analysis of the construction of a new CWA resin regeneration facility located on Avenue 52 on CWA property, or at the current CWA WWTP. The resin regeneration process involves ion exchange using sodium chloride to remove the chromium-6 from the resin beads. Resin regeneration results in a spent brine, which necessitates proper treatment and disposal.
