Document Description
The State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) is a Responsible Agency for the Project. The State Water Board’s Clean Water State Revolving Fund (SRF) Program is financing the Project. The Project consists of an approximately 25,000 square-foot commercial/industrial-like building (microfiltration-reverse osmosis [MF RO] facility), which will include partitioned areas to house the MFRO equipment, pumps, chemical storage, electrical room, control room, restrooms, break room, and janitorial closet. The MFRO facility will have a minimum production capacity of 0.5 million gallons per day (mgd) and maximum effluent capacity of 2.0 mgd The MFRO facility will be designed to accommodate installation of additional equipment in the future that would provide an additional 1.0 mgd of production capacity. The project will 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 from the site easterly along Washington Avenue to an existing recycled water pipeline near Waverly Place and Escondido Creek. The Project will connect to the existing influent pipeline located adjacent to the Escondido Creek concrete-lined Flood Control Channel along the southern side of the project site. Buried site piping will include the influent supply pipeline for the microfiltration system, the storm flow bypass pipeline to the Product Water Tank, the Title 22 recycled water bypass, and RO permeate pipelines to the Product Water Tank. The Title 22 recycled water bypass and RO permeate pipelines would blend to provide the desalted water for the agriculture users. The Project also includes chemical feed and storage facilities for treatment, which will be located inside a partially enclosed area adjacent to the MFRO building.
