Body
SUMMARY:
Santa Clara Valley Water District's (Valley Water) 2040 Water Supply Master Plan (WSMP) recommends developing at least 24,000 acre feet per year (AFY) of additional potable water reuse (above a target of 33,000 AFY of non-potable reuse) by 2040. Valley Water has recently completed a Countywide Water Reuse Master Plan (CoRe Plan) that evaluates potable reuse opportunities throughout Santa Clara County, including identifying options for achieving the WSMP's water reuse targets.
In September 2020, the Board approved a Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Maintain (DBFOM) procurement process under a Public/Private Partnership (P3) to expand indirect potable reuse (IPR). The proposed Project includes the construction of a new advanced water purification facility (AWPF), water conveyance pipelines to the existing Los Gatos Recharge System complex located in the City of Campbell, lateral pipelines, and associated facilities. The AWPF would be located either at the existing Silicon Valley Advanced Water Purification Center on Zanker Road in San Jos? or located at the Former Los Altos Treatment Plant (FLATP) in Palo Alto due to the amount of treated wastewater available for the project. The proposed Project would use advanced water purification processes, including reverse osmosis (RO) treatment and would generate purified water for ground water recharge.
The purpose of the proposed Project is to establish greater water supply reliability for Santa Clara County and to help ensure continued groundwater sustainability. The proposed Project's objectives to meet this purpose are as follows:

Partnership with Cities:
* Support Valley Water's water supply reliability goals, including the provision of at least 10% of all water supplies through recycled water
* Develop t...
