Water Quality Improvement Program

Description:

Water Quality Icon

Davis is working to improve the quality and reliability of its public water supply. The Water Quality Improvement Program will deliver customers higher quality water from diversified and more sustainable sources.


The program will provide 12 million gallons per day of treated surface water from the Sacramento River to Davis water customers.


The City will construct a 8-mile pipeline to connect Davis to the Woodland-Davis Clean Water Agency treatment plant pipeline. The pipeline will transport treated surface water from the treatment plant located just south of Woodland to Davis.

Map: Surface Water Distribution at Start Up

When: October 2015-November 2016

Where: The new distribution pipeline will run south from the Davis-Woodland water supply pipeline and then will split west and east through the City

Hours of Construction: Monday-Friday, with possible Saturday work, 7am-6pm.

Traffic Impact: Possible impacts include road and lane closures, noise and dust

Funding: The City received funding for this project from a State of California Revolving Loan Fund (SRF). The SRF finances the surface water pipeline project as well as the installation of new automated water meters throughout the City and the conversion of some existing wells to irrigation only wells and upgrades to other wells. The State Revolving Fund Loan totals $35.5 million. This funding mechanism has an interest rate of 1.6-1.7% compared to 4% rates on municipal bond funding with a similar term. This saves approximately $15.5 million in interest over 30 years.
