Document Description
The proposed project consists of the construction of a desalination facility at the city's WTP with the capacity to produce up to 6 mgd of finished water; demolition of the existing San Joaquin River intake pump station; construction of a new intake pump station; approx 3,000 ft of pipeline from the existing raw water pipeline underneath Long Tree Way to the city's WTP to allow a direct connection to max use of existing infrastructure; and approx 4 mi of pipeline from the desalination facility to the Delta Diablo WTP to discharge brine with the WWTP effluent through the existing Delta Diablo outfall to New York Slough. The main objectives of the proposed project are to improve water supply reliability and water quality for its customers; develop a reliable and drought-resistance water source to reduce dependency on purchased water supplies; maximize and preserve the use of the city's pre-1914 water rights; and provide cost effective operational flexibility for the city.
