The NVRRWP is a collaborative partnership that includes the
Cities of Modesto, Turlock, Ceres, the Del Puerto Water District, and Stanislaus County.
North Valley Regional Recycled Water Program:
Based on the engineering and economic analysis that was prepared for the North Valley Regional Recycled Water Program, a phased approach is recommended.
Phase 1 would consist of: (1) upgrades to San Joaquin River diversion facilities to enable Modesto's and Turlock's recycled water to be diverted from the San Joaquin River and delivered to Del Puerto Water District via the Delta Mendota Canal, (2) construction of a pipeline distribution system for the direct delivery of recycled water to Del Puerto Water District lands, and (3) construction of the City of Turlock's Harding Drain Pipeline. These facilities would allow near and long-term delivery of recycled water for irrigation of lands in the Del Puerto Water District.
Phase 2 would include: (1) storage facilities that would provide additional recycled water for irrigation while also providing migratory bird habitat, and (2) development of stormwater and additional wastewater supplies to increase the total amount of recycled water availability.
This phased approach provides environmental and economic benefits in the
near-term, while meeting long-term water supply and environmental objectives.
Phase 1 could provide affordable recycled water to agricultural customers in the
Del Puerto Water District as early as 2016. By implementing Phase 1 of the
project, productive agricultural lands can be brought back into full production
and the North Valley communities can recognize an additional $29 million in
total annual income with the creation of more than 572 permanent jobs.
Additional jobs associated with project construction would also be created
during project implementation. Phase 2 would provide additional recycled water
to DPWD lands and would demonstrate a long-term commitment to recycled water
deliveries that would further support job creation and the associated economic
and environmental benefits to the community.
