Expanding reclaimed water production over time
LOTT’s long-range plan includes expansion of reclaimed water production. This production will likely occur at LOTT’s two existing reclaimed water plants. The timing for expansion may be driven by the need for more wastewater treatment capacity, changes to LOTT’s discharge permit requirements, or demand for reclaimed water as a beneficial resource. Additional reclaimed water supplies could be used for a variety of purposes, including water rights mitigation, stream flow or wetland enhancement, groundwater replenishment, and irrigation.
