Title:
North Bay Water Recycling Program (formerly North San Pablo Bay Restoration and Reuse Project) EIR/EIS
Site:
Summary:
The Sonoma County Water Agency (SCWA) has worked with Congressman Thompson to introduce H.R. 1326, which provides authority to plan, design, and construct water reuse projects in the North San Pablo Bay watershed. The NBWRA, comprised of multiple wastewater utilities and one water agency in the North San Pablo Bay region of California (i.e., Marin, Sonoma, Napa, and Solano Counties), plans to expand the use of recycled water in order to improve water supply reliability and reduce treated effluent discharge into San Pablo Bay with this long-term, multi-agency program. The Program area encompasses approximately 318 square miles of land in Marin, Sonoma, and Napa Counties. The Preferred Alternative would be implemented in multiple phases. Reclamtion's Record of Decision covers activities collectively referred to in the EIR/EIS as Phase 1. Phase 1 will provide 2,883 AYF of recycled water for irrigation use. Reclamation is the federal lead agency for NEPA because the Proposed Action may be partially federally funded under Title XVI of Public Law 102-575, as amended, which provides a mechanism for federal participation and cost sharing in approved water reuse projects. Other federal funds would also be used.
