We are currently designing Recycled Water Projects Phases 2A and 2C. These projects will supply about 1,600 acre feet per year of recycled water to the Santa Clarita Valley and are designed to serve areas with large irrigation customers that are currently located away from the existing recycled water system. Some examples of large irrigation customers are Central Park, College of the Canyons and the California Institute of the Arts. The Recycled Water Phase 2 estimated cost is $46.4 million.
The Honby Pipeline Project is also in design and, when completed, will eliminate a restriction in water supply distribution. The new pipeline will increase the ability of the Agency to distribute water to the eastern part of the service area. The estimated project cost is $21.0 million.
The Castaic Conduit Bypass Pipeline Replacement project will also expand the ability to distribute water in the valley. This project will replace a section of aging pipe that is difficult to maintain and represents a bottleneck in the distribution system. The estimated project cost is $14.9 million.
The Agency recently finished an expansion of its Rio Vista Water Treatment Plant that increased capacity from 30 mgd to 66 mgd. The plant treats State Water Project and other imported water and delivers it to the four local water purveyors. The expansion provides additional treatment capacity to meet the growing needs of the Valley. Total project cost is approximately $58.4 million.
