North Valley Regional Recycled Water Program
Site: http://www.nvr-recycledwater.org/
The Del Puerto Water District (DPWD) and the Cities of Turlock and Modesto (Cities) propose to implement a regional solution to address water supply shortages within DPWD’s service area on the west side of the San Joaquin River in San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Merced Counties, south of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta (Delta). The project proposes to deliver up to 59,000 acre feet per year of recycled water produced by the Cities via the Delta-Mendota Canal. Recycled water would be conveyed from Modesto and Turlock through pipelines from their wastewater treatment facilities, crossing the San Joaquin River, and ending at the Delta-Mendota Canal. The recycled water would then be conveyed directly to DPWD customers or to San Luis Reservoir for storage during low water demand periods. In addition to uses within DPWD’s service area, this project also proposes to provide water to Central Valley Project Improvement Act (CVPIA)-designated Refuges located south of the Delta to meet their need for water supply. Additional information and status updates may be available at the posted site URL.

The Notice of Intent was published on April 22, 2014. Scoping Meeting is to be held May 13, 2014, 3:00–7:00 p.m., at Modesto City Hall, 1010 10th Street, Modesto, CA 95354. Written comments on the scope of the draft EIS/EIR are due by May 28, 2014.
