Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The purpose of the Carpinteria Advanced Purification Project is to create a new drought-resistant and reliable supply of local water, produce water suitable for groundwater recharge and potable reuse, and reduce CVWD's reliance on imported surface water and storage at Lake Cachu ma. The proposed Project would produce approximately 1,100 acre-feet per year (AFY) (1.0 million gallons per day (MGD)) of purified water from the CSD WWTP for injection into the local groundwater basin, where it ultimately would be used for CVWD potable water supply. Existing CVWD production wells would be used to recover treated water from the groundwater basin. The ultimate project assumes an expansion from 1.0 MGD to 1.2 MGD based on projected future increases in WWTP flows.
