Document Description
The objectives of the project are to replace aging, failure-prone water distribution system piping and to implement distribution system changes intended to increase turnover of stored water and reduce the incidence of disinfection byproduct (DBP) exceedances. The project would: replace existing pipelines (within public rights-of-way) most vulnerable to failure, reducing lifetime operation and maintenance costs associated with pipeline repair; implement hydraulic improvements, achieving improvements to available fire flows and increased turnover of the Pleasant Valley water storage tank; increase system reliability by placing the Pleasant Valley Tank feed pumps at the WTP, where a standby generator can provide power during a utility outage; and provide two tiers of DBP control approaches: source control at the WTP and mixing and ventilation at the Pleasant Valley Tank.
