Document Description
The proposed project involves upgrades to the existing Riverbank Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), including new secondary and tertiary treatment and disinfection facilities, construction of a recycled water storage tank, reconfiguration of existing treatment and percolation ponds to provide additional seasonal recycled water storage, and installation of a recycled water distribution system to deliver the disinfected tertiary recycled water to agricultural lands adjacent to the WWTP for irrigation of walnut orchards. The project is intended to provide wastewater treatment capacity, up to 2.29 mgd average dry weather flow, to accommodate growth in the City of Riverbank through 2050 and create a source of high-quality irrigation water, up to approximately 2,500 acre-feet per year of Title 22 disinfected tertiary recycled water, to offset groundwater use and contribute to greater water balance in the Eastern San Joaquin Groundwater Subbasin.
