Purified Recycled Water Recharge Supplemental supply project to increase groundwater reliability, especially in dry years (climate change related change).  Could be shifted to SMGWA or replaced with conjunctive use. Environmental Consultant ESA is under contract.  Environmental Impact Review is scheduled to be completed by April 2020 $300,000
Bethany Tank Rehabilitation Construct additional tank on-site to allow for roof reconstruction and interior and exterior coating replacement of 400,000 gallon Bethany Tank.  The project extends tank service life and provides additional permanent storage and redundancy. Geotech assessment is done. The district is considering options for moving forward. potentially installing bolted steel tank as a permanent second tank on site or renting temporary tanks so Bethany Tank can be drained, inspected and recoated $200,000
Automated Meter Infrastructure (AMI) Install AMI transmitters on all meters over a 3-4 year period. Install 1,300 transmitters $150,000
El Pueblo Water Treatment Plant Improvements Replace manual 1980's filter control system with programmable automated control system linked with SCADA.  Upgrades will be completed by in house staff. SCADA and electrical line drawings are being prepared by SCADA Consultant $150,000
Meter Replacement Program Replace all meters installed before 2012 at the rate of 800-1,000 meters per year. Replace 900 5/8" meters $120.000
Pressure Regulator Station Replacement - Northridge & Water Main Replace and relocate Northridge Regulator Station & replace 400' of 4" main. Hydraulic Modeling and Engineering design is underway that may result in permanently removing the PRV station.  The main serving this station would be capped off instead of being replaced $120,000
Pressure Regulator Station Installation - Granite Creek Estates       Install a main line regulator station to reduce 200+ PSI in the distribution system that serves Taryn Ct., Lauren Circ., Traci Ct., and a section of Granite Creek  Rd. This improvement benefits 45 residential services and augments the integrity of the District's potable water system.  Under consideration with potential cost sharing $100,000
Hacienda Pump Station Improvements Pump shed structure is in poor condition and needs to be replaced.  The pumps are very loud and run 24hrs a day.  Noise mitigation and structural upgrades will provide better protection for pumps an motors and reduce noise emissions considerably. The project is going to be rescheduled for the next fiscal year $60,000
