Water Supply / Recharge
Redundancy Well for Flouride Treatment Plant Project
    Project Objective
  • 10: Preserve water quality
Project Funding Area

Colorado

Project Description

The District currently has one existing supply well, TP-1, which provides approximately 40 percent of District supply, that is equipped with a treatment system which removes naturally-occurring fluoride from the water. Fluoride concentrations within the District range between 0.34 to 2.6 mg/L, at times higher than the statewide MCL of 2.0 mg/L. In 1993, the District was granted a variance from the MCL, which allows the District to meet the higher federal drinking water standard of 3.0 mg/L. Anticipating expiration of the variance in 2023, the District is concerned about providing both fluoride treatment capability for two additional wells which contain fluoride at concentrations exceeding the MCL, and also for providing a redundant supply, in the event that well TP-1 is unavailable for an extended period of time.

Twentynine Palms Water District AMI/AMR Smart Meter Upgrade Project
    Project Objective
  • 07: Support to DACs
Project Funding Area

Colorado

Project Description

The District is seeking grant funding for the upgrade of its current meters to Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI)/Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) technology. This project will help to increase water use efficiency and improve overall water management on a District-wide scale and will address deficiencies noted in the System Wide Audit by providing highly accurate, meter reading capabilities at residential and commercial sites. Implementation of this project will enable leaks and unusual water usage to be identified and addressed, ultimately reducing overall water demand. The District intends to implement a pilot project to determine the potential water savings before implemeting the meters on a District-wide scale.

Sustainable Management, Affordability, & Reliability for Twentynine Palms Plan (SMART Plan)
    Project Objective
  • 12: Improve public awareness
Project Funding Area

Colorado

Project Description

Twentynine Palms Water District faces challenges in three distinct areas: 1) Thwarting threats to groundwater quality; 2) Maintaining affordability for customers while protecting safe drinking water; 3) Updating our water conservation efforts. The objective of SMART Plan is to protect water quality, affordability and supply. The proposed project would implement efforts of the SMART Plan via technical review and project identification, research into funding and financing, stakeholder outreach to ensure outreach and transparency, and groundwater data collection.

Twentynine Palms Water District Salt and Nutrient Management Plan (SNMP) Groundwater Monitoring Project
    Project Objective
  • 10: Preserve water quality
Project Funding Area

Colorado

Project Description

In June of 2014 the District prepared a SNMP that has the primary purpose of developing a strategy for the District, along with the City of Twentynine Palms to monitor and protect the groundwater resources in the Twentynine Palms area. The SNMP recognizes and addresses the increased need to assess potential groundwater quality impacts from salt and nutrient sources that are derived primarily from septic tanks in the Twentynine Palms area. The project proposes to implement the recommendations in the SNMP which include increased sampling of the District’s existing production wells, establishing a water quality monitoring well network, and installation of new monitoring wells.

JBWD's Saddleback Water Main Repalcement Project
    Project Objective
  • 07: Support to DACs
Project Funding Area

Colorado

Project Description

The Saddleback Water Main Replacement project is a 23,500 linear foot construction project that contributes towards the elimination of undersized pipes, improvement of fire suppression capabilities, increase in capacity to eliminate material scoring, and replacement of inoperable valves. The CIRP is a long term, multi-year program that will utilize District staff to complete projects that include but are not limited to the replacement of watermains, service lines, fire hydrants, meters and other water related appurtenances. This project has been determined to be a Class 1 Categorical Exemption under Article 19. CEQA Section 15301. Exisiting facilities. JBWD’s DAC customers spend approximately $4.40 for every hundred cubic foot of water consumed. The Census Designated Place of Joshua Tree makes up a significant portion of JBWD’s service area. Joshua Tree has an average MHI of $38,297, just 62% of the California Statewide MHI. The census tracts and block groups that overlap with the rest of JBWD’s service area have MHIs ranging from $18,125 to $45,089 (29% to 73% California MHI). With this in mind, the District in 2015 spent $0.18 on mainline leak repairs for every $1.00 spent on water production. Ov/er the course of the past three years, the potable water system leaks contributed towards an increase to $0.28 for every $1.00 spent. This significant increase in water cost is passed down to JBWD’s DAC.

Colorado

Project Description

The Sunburst Water Main Replacement project is a 21,500 linear foot construction project that contributes towards the elimination of undersized pipes, improvement of fire suppression capabilities, increase in capacity to eliminate material scoring, and replacement of inoperable valves. The CIRP is a long term, multi-year program that will utilize District staff to complete projects that include but are not limited to the replacement of watermains, service lines, fire hydrants, meters and other water related appurtenances. This project bolsters one of the District’s K-6 institutional facilities. JBWD’s DAC customers spend approximately $4.40 for every hundred cubic foot of water consumed. The Census Designated Place of Joshua Tree makes up a significant portion of JBWD’s service area. Joshua Tree has an average MHI of $38,297, just 62% of the California Statewide MHI.

Palisades Ranch Riparian Restoration and Public Education Project
    Project Objective
  • 12: Improve public awareness
Project Funding Area

Colorado, Lahontan

Project Description

MDLT will partner with various specialists, including riparian restoration experts, wildlife biologists, and archaeologists, to establish resource baselines and develop a conceptual restoration plan for Palisades Ranch. This plan will also explore the possibility for public access and provide a 60% design and CEQA analysis. Pending completion of the restoration design, MDLT will then begin implementing the required riparian restoration to return the Mojave River to its natural channel, and continue developing resources to improve public access and education opportunities on the site.

R3 Turnout #5
    Project Objective
  • 5: Optimize region’s water-related assets
Project Funding Area

Lahontan

Project Description

A new Regional Recharge and Recovery (R3) connection will be constructed in the area of Amethyst Road and Mesa Road in the City of Victorville. The connection at this location and transmission pipeline to VWD facility is collectively referred to as Turnout 5. The project was originally proposed in the early stages of the R3 Project planning, as such, an existing blind flange is in place on the R3 west conveyance line at the site of the proposed connection. A turnout facility will be constructed that is similar to the existing R3 turnouts. From the R3 line connection, approximately one mile of pipeline will be installed directly north and connect to VWD’s facility No. 129 at the corner of Amethyst Road and Sycamore Road in the City of Victorville. Once at Site No.129, R3 water will be disinfected with Sodium Hypochlorite before entering into VWD’s distribution system. Once constructed, the R3 Turnout 5 will function as a supplemental water supply, when available, to serve VWD customers and will assist the VWD with meeting water quality regulations as a less expensive alternative to costly Ion Exchange and Coagulation/Filtration water treatment, currently utilized by the VWD.

Replacement Production Well for BDVWA Goat Mountain System
    Project Objective
  • 07: Support to DACs
Project Funding Area

Colorado

Project Description

Following acquisition ID Goat Mtn. (formally CoSB CSA-70/W1 Goat Mtn.) by BDVWA it was determined that one of the production wells, GMW2, had reached the end of its useful life. Calculations show that this system cannot meet Maximum Day Demand with the largest well (GMW3) offline. Therefore, another production well is needed in ID GM
