ENGINEERING AND DEVELOPMENT

Water and Sanitation Construction Projects

Projects Under Construction

  • Well No. 2 — Iron and Management Filters
    • This project includes the construction of a wellhead treatment system including: iron and manganese treatment vessels, chemical addition systems, reclaimed water tank, and the associated piping and electrical appurtenances. The project is being funded through a USDA loan. The District is currently in the final stages of design and plans to have the project start construction in early 2018. 
  • Coating and Repair — College 1 & 2 and Gabbert Reservoirs
    • Project consists of interior relining, welding repair and spot repair of 1.0 million gallon, 1.5 million gallon and 2 million gallon welded steel potable water tanks at the College 1 and 2 and Gabbert Reservoirs.
  • Piru Desalter (Not awarded yet)
  • Piru Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade
    • Currently in the construction phase, the Piru Wastewater Treatment Plant will be upgraded to include tertiary treatment facilities for the effluent and the addition of a solids dewatering belt filter press system.  The project is being funded by a Grant from Proposition 84, funding from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), and available District funds.

Projects in Design

  • MWRF Battery/Microgrid Project
    • Design of a 750 kW battery energy storage system and smart microgrid to improve MWRF resiliency during Edison power shutoff events and allow electric load shaving during high peak electric usage periods.  System will integrate with MWRF’s existing solar field to allow charging of batteries and islanding MWRF from Edison, self-powering facility during various periods of the day. Project is funded through the CPUC’s SGIP program for a total reimbursement is $1,992,050.  The improvements are expected to save $355,400 over the 15-year life of the battery by reducing peak energy period power charges.   
  • Well 97 Replacement
    • Re-drill replacement well for ageing Well No. 97.  New well will be drilled in same parcel location and allow District to continue to meet its groundwater allocation.  Design will include replacement and re-development of the ageing facility equipment. 
  • MWRF Warehouse Storage Building
    • This project is to build a storage building at Moorpark Water Reclamation Facility (MWRF) in Moorpark. The new steel storage building will be across from the existing office and laboratory building. The proposed pad is roughly 16,000 square feet, the site is currently vacant, relatively flat parcel with approximately 9-foot high earthen berm bordering the area on north, south and east sides. The storage building will be approximately 7000 square feet with 35 feet driveway and 15 feet driveway setbacks around. This project is currently in the design phase. 
  • Stockton Reservoir #2
    • Currently in the design phase, the Stockton Reservoir will replace the existing 0.5 million gallon storage reservoir. The existing reservoir is located in the 994 pressure zone in the northwest portion of the District and is at the end of its useful service life.  The new Stockton Reservoir will be a 1.0 million gallon steel tank located on Stockton Road near the existing tank. 
  • SR118 Left Turn Lane
    • Construction left turn lane to Moorpark Wastewater Rehabilitation Facility to alleviate safety issue at the MWRF entrance on Los Angeles Avenue. 
  • Moorpark Desalter
    • Construct a Wellhead Treatment Facility within the South Las Posas Basin to improve water quality, treat approximately 5,000 acre-feet of effluent from the treatment plant and reduce the dependance on imported water. Construct a Well Field within the South Las Posas Basin. Construction of pipeline to connect to the agricultural Distribution System to provide recycled water to agricultural customers. 
  • Piru Battery/Microgrid Project
    • Design of a 140kW battery energy storage system and smart microgrid to improve the Piru Wastewater Treatment Plant’s resiliency during Edison power shutoff events and allow plant to island from Edison for up to 18 hours, when batteries are fully charged.  Project is funded through the CPUC’s SGIP program for a total reimbursement is $910,380.  The improvements are expected to save $156,624 over the 20-year life of the battery by reducing peak energy period power charges.
  • Bell Canyon Reservoir #3
    • Design of a new 1.74 MG reservoir within the 1677 Zone with new site access road.  Includes the replacement of approximately 5,000 LF of 10” steel pipe and replacement of 700 LF of 12″ AC pipeline. 

Projects in Planning/Preliminary Studies

  • District 1 Water Master Plan
    • The master plan project includes updates to the current UWMP and District 1 Water Master Plan, including updating the hydraulic water system model by combining the model files into one single file which will be integrated into the District’s asset management software, Sedaru. The update of the District 1 Water Master Plan will be from the 2008 Water Master Plan, and the 2015 Urban Water Management Plan (UWMP) will be used as the basis for the new 2020 UWMP. 
  • District 1 Stormwater Diversion and Groundwater Recharge
    • Construction stormwater intake structures, and recovery ponds to harvest storm runoff from Arroyo Simi/Arroyo Las Posas. 
  • 538 Tank Replacement
    • Increase the storage capacity of the 538 Zone by the installation of an additional reservoir or the replacement of the existing reservoir by a larger unit. Replacement of the existing transmission line crossing under the river. The water line crossing the river is very old and can be washed out of service during major storm event. 

Recently Completed Projects

  • Montgomery Lift Station Bypass Manhole
    • Installation of a new polymer concrete manhole immediately adjacent to the existing Montgomery Lift Station.  New manhole strategically allows a simplified bypass operation to be setup during planned and unplanned maintenance work for station. New manhole location improves ability and safety for workers associated with setting up bypass and performing maintenance work on station. 
  • Zone II Booster Pump Station Upgrades
    • This project served to upgrade the electrical features and controls of the Zone II Booster Pump Station including: the installation of a above ground motor control center and appurtenances, programable logic controller, generator pad, Cla Val controls, vault exhaust fan, and the demolition of the existing controls and electrical components. 
  • Well No. 15 Rehabilitation
    • Project increased falling well production from 400 to 800 GPM, a 200% increase.  Project entailed removing well pump and performing a complete rehabilitation of the well, to remove iron and manganese bacteria build up and plugging.  Cleaning and re-conditioning of the column pipe, tubing, and shaft; re-conditioning of the pump motor.  Installation of a new pump assembly to replace the failing unit.
