The District used a progressive design-build approach to design and construct the improvements. The District collects and treats wastewater from approximately 80 square miles with a population of about 200,000 and releases treated water back into the environment of the Great Salt Lake.

Recycled Water Master Plan – Contra Costa Water District
The District investigated an expansion of its recycled water system to include the use of the existing Canal to supply recycled water to a new customer base. As part of the investigations, the District prepared a master plan for a recycled water system that would be supplied with recycled water from a nearby wastewater treatment facility and discharged into a 48-mile-long canal. The canal conveys recycled water to multiple decentralized storage and distribution systems located along its length. An assessment of potential industrial, commercial, and institutional markets; estimate of capital and operating costs; and a conceptual design of the storage and distribution facilities is included in the master plan.
