The second project is the City of Oxnard’s Aquifer Storage Recovery (ASR) Project which is eligible to receive up to $27.6 million in WIFIA loan funding. This project consists of design and implementation of enhancements to the City’s recycled water system, including expansion of the City’s Advanced Water Purification Facility, construction of new ASR wells and construction of other facilities to convey recovered groundwater for potable reuse. The project is anticipated to facilitate production and use of 14,000 AFY of advanced treated water to improve the City’s water supply reliability with local supplies.
Our effort on each of these applications will total approximately $77k ($17k for LOIs already completed and $60k for the full applications – in progress). We will also be positioning for design work.
