*Numbers are Rounded

$20 Million for New Projects

Inland Empire Utilities Agency’s most recent CIP plans to spend $140.4 million on Regional Wastewater Operations and Maintenance, a 32.9% increase from last year’s planned spending, partially due to the Advanced Water Purification Facility project, valued at $11.3 million. The Water Resources/ Wastewater business area also increased by 160.6%. The $19.9 million increase is due to the 22 new projects. The Regional Wastewater Capital Improvement category cut its spending to $67.4 million, a 10% decrease resulting from the Liquids Expansion and Solids Treatment Facility projects that will be completed by FY 2024/25.

Planned Investments in Biosolids, Plant Expansions

The current CIP contains 153 projects, with 3 projects valued at more than $100 million. Despite the decrease in Regional Wastewater Capital Improvement spending, it gets the three most significant projects. The largest single project is the construction of the Regional Plant (RP)-5 Biosolids Facility, a new solid handling facility to meet the agency’s needs throughout the decommissioning of the Regional Plant No. 2 site, worth $182.8 million. Another $167.4 is planned for the RP-5 Expansion to 30 million gallons per day (mgd) project to improve the tertiary treatment and lining of the recycled water lagoon. Additionally, $100 million is programmed for the Thickening Building & Acid Phase Digester project.
