North Valley Regional Recycled Water Program
A Regional Solution for Local Water Needs
How it Works
The NVRRWP is a collaborative partnership that includes the City of Modesto, the City of Turlock, and Del Puerto Water District as primary partners. The City of Ceres and Stanislaus County are also signatories to the program.
Currently, all of Turlock's and a portion of Modesto's recycled water leaves the region as it is discharged to the San Joaquin River. The NVRRWP will allow Turlock and Modesto to send its treated wastewater to the Del Puerto Water District via a direct pipeline (or pipelines) to the Delta-Mendota Canal. Del Puerto Water District will, in turn, distribute that water to the agricultural customers within its service area. As much as 30,600 acre feet per year could be available as soon as 2018.
