Project Description

The lift station is preferred over the RO plant due to the ongoing operational and maintenance costs associated with RO. The RO project could integrate with other recycled water projects in the region, such as with the City of Adelanto; however, VSD 4 lift station is preferred over this project due to the ongoing operational and maintenance costs associated with reverse osmosis. Integrates Projects 17 and 61. From Steve Ashton on 4/30/2018: Good afternoon Matt,

Sorry for the late response. Regarding the RO/Lift Station project – we have settled on RO. Because hauling away RO brine is to cost prohibitive in the desert, we are first looking at sites and sizes for evaporation ponds. There are many things in play regarding this project, such as a possible partnership with the HDPP to dispose their brine in RO evap ponds rather than remaining a Zero-discharge facility. This would, of course, effect the sizing of the ponds. I wish I had more information to give you on this project, but there are a lot of unknowns at this time.

Integrates Projects 17 and 61. Project moved to INACTIVE LIST Feb 2020 (currently evaluating site and costs for evaporation ponds); RO treatment facility not yet known – Evaporation pond costs estimated between 5,800,000 and 6,100,000 depending on amount of earthwork and pipeline needed. Project Update: have settled on RO installation rather than VSD 4 Lift Station.

Project Description

Program would identify water supply, water quality and infrastructure needs of small drinking water systems within the IRWM Region. Small systems needs may include but not limited to: Water quality treatment systems, fireflow protection, replacing aging infrastructure, install new infrastructure, interconnection with other purveyors, well drilling, scada systems, feasibility studies, etc. This program would help connect small systems to available funding by identifying funding sources, assisting with grant applications and paperwork, etc. Sources of funding could include State and Federal funds from a variety of programs designed to help small systems in the identified challenges listed. Integrates Projects 6, 7, 15, 44, 45R 52, 69, 80, 83, 84, 85, 100, and 120.

Project Description

Design and install conveyance from R-Cubed to purveyors not currently connected to R-Cubed. This may be through direct conveyance or via interconnections with purveyors currently receiving R-Cubed water to “wheel” water to purveyors adjacent to their systems. The project includes study, design and facilities. Integrates Projects 37, 96, 124.

Project Description

The Mojave River is choked with vegetation causing channel capacities to be exceeded during major flood events. Removing the vegetation and/or excavating the channel would increase the carrying capacity and decrease the flood risk for select areas. By allowing flood water to flow without restrictions, areas downstream might have a higher probability to be naturally recharged during small and large storm events.Design and reinstate a channel(s) through project area to carry storm flows to reduce flooding of improved parcels

Project Description

Urban water management planning requires planning, design and implementation of a variety of best management practices for the purposes of increasing conservation, educating the community on water issues, and reducing wasteful water practices. A large component of the proposed project is a system-wide leak detection program. Integrates Projects 39 and 99.

Project Description

Provides an opportunity for recharge in the Este Subarea. Recharge sites have been contemplated both east and west of the Helendale Fault. The 1994 RWMP recommended constructing a facility east of the fault because the majority of pumping occurs east of fault. MWA has purchased land for a recharge facility, prepared preliminary construction plans, and performed the necessary environmental reviews.

Project Description

Recharge Basin from State Water Project along with 2 pumping wells. The purpose for this project is to purchase
water from State Water Project in the future. Currently the District pumps 100% of its water with natural recharge of the basin. With future growth comes future water demand the District is looking at utilizing the Sheep Creek California Aqueduct turn-out to extract state water to recharge the proposed basin utilizing the proposed pipeline. The two proposed wells will be used to pump water into our distribution system. They will also serve to monitor static and pumping levels of the ground water.
