1 FOOTHILL MUNICIPAL WATER DISTRICT Recycled Water Demonstration Project Special Board Workshop September 4, 2013

2 Workshop Objective To Discuss Status of FMWD Recycled Water Demonstration Program Activities including Demonstration Project Alternatives and Receive Public Input 9/4/2013 2

3 From Strategic Plan (2005): Foothill Municipal Water District will reliably deliver quality water to its member agencies in a cost- efficient manner to meet their projected demands. STRENGTHS, WEAKNESSES, OPPORTUNITIES & THREATS (SWOT) Analysis Main Weaknesses: Lack of System Redundancy Limited Supply at Single MWD Source Lack of Storage Not Diversified 9/4/2013 3 Role of FMWD

4 Completed Technical Reports & Studies Since 2007, FMWD completed: Master Plan (2007), Water Resources Plan (2009), UWMP (2010), Recycled Water Feasibility Study (2012) Master Plan recommended FMWD suspend consideration on second connection to MWD Water Resources Plan prioritized developing local reliability related to future probabilities of imported water draught storages and emergency outages: 1.Groundwater2. Recycled Water 3. Conservation4. Interties 9/4/2013 4

5 Recycled Water Feasibility Study Conclusions Evaluated 17 alternatives and recommended 3 projects in: Verdugo Basin with CVWD and Glendale; Monk Hill in Devils Gate and Eaton Wash Areas Recycled water production: 48 AFY to 560 AFY Proposed Pilot Demonstration Project (280 AFY) October 2012: Project costs decreased from: $3,759,072 to $2,935,300 Submitted for IRWM Funding Grant, USBR Funding and MWD for Foundational Action Funding 9/4/2013 5
