, the CAP Water Treatment Plant and the Gainey Ranch Wastewater Treatment Facility as well as the Wastewater Collections team.
Last year saw a major milestone in the cleanup efforts, as a groundwater treatment facility
built at the site was turned on.
Construction of the groundwater treatment facility
began in 1993 and was to be operational until 2005.
Capitalization of the groundwater treatment facility
was required because an improvement was created that enhanced the value of the property and had a useful life substantially beyond the year of construction.
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: When Washoe County constructed the Longley Lane Groundwater Treatment Facility
to serve Hidden Valley and Bella Vista, they severed interties with the TMWA gravity system.
The groundwater treatment facility
, which will process and clean the site's contaminated groundwater as regulated by the EPA, is placed on the southwest side of South Street, near an area of the worst contamination.
However, the costs associated with constructing the groundwater treatment facility
were capital expenditures.
The City of East Palo Alto (City) requests proposals for engineering services for design of a new groundwater treatment facility
at the Gloria Way production well.
