The CIEMP Phase 2 Improvements include critical near-term projects required to maintain compliance with the facilities National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit, extend the useful life of existing facilities, improve working conditions for City staff, and realize greater energy efficiency of the RWCF. The RWCF occupies approximately 690 acres and is located adjacent, and discharges treated wastewater effluent to, the San Joaquin River and lies within the tidally influenced region of the Sacramento River-San Joaquin River Delta. The RWCF has a treatment capacity of 55 million gallons per day (average dry weather flow) and is the second largest wastewater treatment plant in the Central Valley. RBI is providing primary strategic and technical direction for the EIR and is preparing water quality and fisheries resource chapters.
