Document Description
The City is proposing an expansion to its wastewater treatment infrastructure with construction of a 1.0 million gallon per day (MGD) Industrial Wastewater Reclamation Facility (IWRF) with provisions to expand up to 3.0 or 4.0 MGD in the future. The City’s existing municipal wastewater treatment plant (MWWTP) has been challenged the past several years due to the nature of flows discharged to the MWWTP by local industrial facilities. The separation of domestic and industrial waste flows requires a dedicated industrial waste collection system to convey industrial flows to the IWRF. This new facility will allow the City to expand its wastewater capacity for residential, commercial, and industrial development and protect groundwater quality. The project would also include an industrial wastewater conveyance line consisting of approximately 10,700 linear feet (up to 24-inch diameter) located mainly within City right-of-way, existing City sewer easements, or within County rights-of-way. Similar to the existing wastewater conveyance line, the proposed industrial wastewater conveyance line would convey flows by gravity to the IWRF.
