Document Title
Walnut Creek Water Treatment Plant Pretreatment Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Received
Present Land Use
The Walnut Creek WTP is the primary water treatment plant serving approximately 500,000 customers in EBMUD’s east-of-hills service area, which includes portions of Pleasant Hill, portions of Walnut Creek, Alamo, Lafayette, Danville, Blackhawk, and San Ramon Valley. The Walnut Creek WTP primarily treats Mokelumne River water stored in the Sierra foothills at Pardee Reservoir, but also treats water stored locally in Briones Reservoir.
Document Description
The proposed Project would add pretreatment facilities to the Walnut Creek WTP that would allow EBMUD to more reliably treat lower quality untreated water resulting from high rainfall runoff, wildfires, future droughts, algae blooms, climate change and emerging contaminants. The proposed Project would also improve treated water taste and odor and eliminate treatment process limitations that prevent the Walnut Creek WTP from being able to sustain its planned capacity of 160 million gallons per day (MGD).
