Wastewater Treatment and Beneficial Reuse

The Centre Region municipalities selected the beneficial reuse project as the best alternative after extensive financial and technical analysis of each alternative. Beneficial Reuse was in the “Alternatives Utilizing Land Application or Aquifer Recharge to Recycle Treated Wastewater Within the Watershed” category. One of the most important reasons the Centre Region selected beneficial reuse is that some treated wastewater is reclaimed and reused in the watershed for environmental enhancements or conveyed to reuse customers. The two primary goals of the beneficial reuse project are to: Have no negative impact to aquatic life by limiting average daily discharge to no more than 6.0 MGD. Accommodate future growth in the Region by authorizing the UAJA to produce up to 3.0 MGD of beneficial reuse water for use by environmental enhancement or conveying to reuse customers.
