Wheatland Regional Sewer Pipeline Project
Document Type
FIN - Final Document
Present Land Use
The project is a regional sewer infrastructure improvement project that extends through properties within the City of Wheatland and unincorporated Yuba County. Generally, the pipeline alignment would extend from an existing pump station near the City’s existing wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) north to a point of connection with the Olivehurst Public Utility District (OPUD) wastewater system in an unincorporated area of the County.
Document Description
The primary goal of the proposed project is to construct the necessary pipelines and pump stations to successfully convey all current and future wastewater into a regional sewer system serving south Yuba County. The proposed pipeline would connect to OPUD’s force main (currently under design) near Rancho Road and State Route 65. OPUD would convey the flow to OPUD’s WWTP, where the flows would be treated to a tertiary level and discharged into a tributary to the Feather River. Additionally, three new pump stations would be constructed along the new pipeline to convey all projected flows to the OPUD point of connection and a new Public Works corporation yard would be constructed within the Pump Station 2 site. After construction of the pipeline and pump stations, it is anticipated that the City’s existing WWTP would be decommissioned, though the possibility exists for the WWTP to remain in operation for an interim period.
