|The next phase of the MRWSP&IP 2010 Feasibility Analysis of Proposed Water Supply Projects, Reclaimed Water Optimization and Water Conservation was initiated in May 2007. Phase II included additional detailed feasibility analyses for the potential water resource options identified in Phase I.
Phase IIs purpose was to develop conceptual designs for the identified projects, detailed feasibility analyses of the projects, project prioritization, project selection and coordination with local partners to move towards project implementation. Potential water source options that had been identified in the RWSPU were evaluated to assess environmental impacts, ability to permit, public perception, long-term viability of source, relative cost and time required to implement, conflicts with existing sources, ability to serve multiple users, and compatibility with current utility systems. Factors such as proximity to a contaminated source, proximity to wellhead or surface water resource protection zone, and limitations imposed by adopted Minimum Flows or Levels (MFLs) were evaluated.
Phase II further described and prioritized proposed projects based on a more in-depth analysis. This analysis included project sizing, cost-estimation, cost-benefit analyses, timing / scheduling and optimization of potential projects. The Phase II component included determining regional and sub-regional approaches to water supply development and locating local governments and private entities to partner with each other and/or the Authority on water projects, reclaimed water distribution and water conservation programs.
