NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Document Description
The CAPP, proposed by CVWD in partnership with CSD, would advance treat local wastewater flows and beneficially reuse them for groundwater recharge. The CAPP would consist of construction and operation of a new AWPF, conveyance pipelines, injection and monitoring wells, ocean outfall modifications, and other facilities to produce advanced treated water for groundwater recharge, storage, and potable reuse. The purpose of the CAPP is to increase local water supply and reliability through groundwater injection and storage. The CAPP aims to produce 1,100 acre ft per year, or 1.0 mgd advanced treated water intially, with the potenital for ultimate expansion to 1.5 mgd. A new AWPF would be constructed at the existing CSD WWTP, located entirely within the existing footprint of the site. Approx 8,100 lf of pipeline would be installed to convey the advanced treated water to groundwater injection wells, and up to 1,400 lf of pipeline would be installed to convey backwash water to existing sewers or stormwater conveyance systems. Note: See NOP for full description.
