South Village Wastewater Expansion

Project Description

The Woods Valley Ranch Wastewater Expansion Project is comprised of the design and construction of the following four facility components to be owned by the District that will serve and specially benefit the property within the Assessment District: 1) the Woods Valley Ranch Water Reclamation Facility (WVRWRF) Phase 2 Expansion, 2) the Charlan Road Seasonal Storage Facility 3) the South Village Wastewater Collection System, and 4) the North Village Wastewater Collection System:

Wood Valley Ranch Water Reclamation Facility Phase 2 Expansion

A 200,000 gpd expansion is proposed for the existing 75,000 gpd facility.  With the proposed expansion, an additional 5,000 gpd of capacity can be realized in the existing facilities, for a total capacity of 275,000 gpd total capcity. Thus, the proposed improvements increase the plant capacity from 280 EDUs (representing the initial 270 lots of Woods Valley Ranch subdivision and 10 EDUs for the golf course) to 1,375 EDUs; a 1,095 EDU increase.  The improvements consist primarily of additional headworks, treatment process, filtration and emergency storage improvements.

Charlan Road Seasonal Storage Facility

A 48 acre-foot lined reservoir to contain treated effluent discharged from the water reclamation facility during wet weather conditions when irrigation is not needed.  This project consists of 15 foot high earthen berm construction, polyethylene liner, access road, security and pumping facilities to return recycled water to the golf course distribution system.

The South Village Wastewater Collection System Facilities

These facilities consist of the following:

  • Low pressure wastewater collection system which consists of small diameter HDPE pressure piping system serving individual parcels not included within major developments.
  • Orchard Run Lift Station and Forcemain in Old Road and Valley Center Road to the WVRWRF.
  • Recycled water line improvements in areas where collection facilities are proposed; Valley Center Road and Old Road.  While the majority of the recycled water generated by the Expansion Project will be sent to the Woods Valley Ranch Golf Course, some will ultimately be sent to irrigation areas within the major developments located in the South Village area.  These developments are required to provide irrigation areas within their developments of sufficient size to accommodate the amount of recycled water generated by their development and the necessary piping to them.  Irrigation areas for all properties in the North Village Area will need to be provided outside the South Village Area.  These areas are proposed west of the Orchard Run property off Betsworth Road and would utilize the recycled water lines constructed with the Project.

 

The North Village Wastewater Collection System Facilities

These facilities consist of the following:

  • Low pressure wastewater collection system which consists of small diameter HDPE pressure piping system serving individual parcels not included within major developments.
  • Gravity main from Valley Center Road to the proposed North Village Lift Station. 
  • North Village Lift Station and forcemain in Valley Center Road to the forcemain included in the South Village Collection system just north of Old Road.

Funding

Funding for this project will be a combination of property owner contributions and proceeds of a State Revolving Fund (SRF) loan.  Annual assessment installments would be collected from the property owner participants to repay the SRF loans over a twenty year period.
