The East Valley Water District has received approval and funding for a $126-million wastewater treatment plant that will produce high quality recycled water in Highland, Calif. The plant will recycle 10-million gal of wastewater a day, or 3.65-billion gal of water annually, to be used to replenish groundwater. The plant is expected to be online by 2020. The district is selecting a design-build firm to lead construction of the plant, to be built on a 14-acre parcel. The San Bernardino County Local Agency Formation Commission granted the district permission to treat wastewater on June 21. The facility will be funded through $119 million in low-interest loans and $6.7 million in grants from the Clean Water State Revolving Fund and Prop 1 Water Bond 2014 Funds.
