Document Description
The Escondido MFRO Facility (Facilty) would provide advanced treatment for Title 22 quality reuse water produced at the City of Escondido Hale Avenue Resource Recovery Facility (HARRF). The Facility would utilize membrane filtration (MF) (i.e. , microfiltration or ultrafiltration membranes) and reverse osmosis (RO) technologies sized for a total production capacity of 2.0 million gallons per day (mgd). High quality treated water would be blended with Title 22 recycled water within an on-site blend tank. The water would then be sent through existing non-potable reuse water/agriculture pipelines and distributed to growers. The proposed project would consist of an approximately 25,000 SF commercial/industrial-like building, two storage tanks (1,000,000 gallon and 240,000 gallon), associated pumps and other on-site infrastructure, and a back-up desiel generator. The facility would be designed to accommodate installation of additional equipment in the future that would provide an additional 1.0 mgd of production capacity. The project would also include the installation of a 24-inch product water pipeline, which is a one (1 )-mile long pipeline along Washington Avenue that would transport the product water easterly to an existing recycled water pipeline near Waverly Place and the Escondido Creek Flood Control Channel.
