Within the next 5 years, CVWD plans to expand its recycled water infrastructure at Wastewater Reclamation Plant 4 (WRP 4) in Thermal to serve agricultural users and other area landscape irrigation customers.
Using more recycled water will conserve local groundwater and reduce demand for imported Colorado River water.
Phase 1 includes:
Designing and constructing a one million gallon per day (MGD) tertiary facility to deliver a blend of recycled water and canal water to three customers south of WRP 4 located on the downstream end of Irrigation Lateral 99.8- 0.51 (approximately 480 acres).
Treatment will consist of a 1.0 MGD packaged cloth disk filtration plant with onsite infrastructure expandable to 2.5 MGD. Currently, the customers irrigate using canal water.
Canal and recycled water blend would be delivered to customers from WRP 4.
