The City's drinking water supply from its groundwater wells has been declining at nearly 3 to 4 percent annually for the past 50 years. As such, they are facing potential drinking water shortages by the year 2010 at their current population growth rate. Additionally, nearly 50 percent of their groundwater supply does not meet the new drinking water standard for arsenic of 10 ug/L. This project investigated potential improvements to the City's drinking water system to meet both the supply and arsenic compliance needs. Alternatives considered in the Preliminary Engineering Report included surface water treatment, groundwater treatment, a secondary pressure irrigation system, new groundwater wells, blending for arsenic compliance, aquifer storage and recovery (ASR), and large-scale storage during non-peak demand periods.
