Document Description
The Riverside Facilities Master Plan (FMP) is an integrated master plan that evaluates the performance and capacity of Western Municipal Water District’s potable water, recycled/non-potable water, and wastewater systems within Western’s Riverside Retail Service Area. The FMP provides a list of recommended capital improvement projects to guide Western with implementation of recommended improvements to support future growth and development of the Riverside Retail Service Area. The FMP presents existing system deficiencies that need to be corrected as well as future improvements and facility upgrades to be implemented by 2030 and under buildout conditions (after 2030). The projects include upsizing of existing pipelines as well as new pipelines; new storage tanks; new booster pump stations; new pumps at existing pump stations; capacity upgrades at existing lift stations; and potential expansion of the District’s Western Water Recycling Facility (WWRF).
