- Recycled Water Improvements at WWTF
- The City prepared a Recycled Water Feasibility Study to comply with the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board Waste Discharge Requirements Order No. R5-2014-0163. The City has determined that recycling treated effluent on newly developed agricultural land adjacent to the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) is the most beneficial use for their treated effluent. Effluent will be applied to the reclamation area during periods when alfalfa is being grown/harvested. When effluent is not needed for the crops or otherwise is not discharged to the reclamation area, it will continue to be stored in the lined storage ponds. The City will also incorporate certain improvements and rehabilitation measures to improve the operation of the existing WWTP. Such improvements include rehabilitating the plant's headworks, replacing aerators in the treatment ponds, determining feasible way to clean out the aeration treatment ponds, lining the percolation/evaporation ponds, adding an emergency storage pond and pump station to recirculate water back to the treatment ponds.
