Recycled Water Facility
Novato Sanitary District
RMC designed and provided engineering services during construction for a recycled water treatment facility designed to incorporate existing process structures and pipelines that had previously been abandoned. Process components included filter feed and recycled water distribution pumping, yard piping, upflow continuous backwashing filters, chlorine disinfection, clearwell storage, and chemical addition. The $6-million recycling facility provides tertiary treated water for local landscape irrigation, saving Novato an estimated 150 million gallons of water a year, enough to supply about 1,400 single-family homes a year.
