Central WWTP to Sundance WRF Effluent Pipeline

  • September, 2015
  • City of Buckeye

Project Overview

Two of the City of Buckeye’s WRFs, the Sundance WRF and the Central Buckeye WWTP (CBWWTP) both produce A+ quality effluent, however only a portion of the effluent produced by these plants is used for direct reuse. The remainder of the effluent is disposed of by discharging to the Buckeye Water Conservation and Drainage District (BWCDD) canals. These canals receive the
effluent from the City’s treatment plants at no cost. The City is not currently receiving any recharge credits for disposing of the effluent in the canals.

Felix and Dibble Engineering were selected as the Design-Build team to design and construct 5 1/2 miles of a 12-inch C-900 transmission main to convey effluent from the Central Buckeye Wastewater Treatment Plant to the Sundance Water Reclamation Facility allowing the effluent to be used in the Sundance service area.

This project was financed in in part by the Water Infrastructure Finance Authority of Arizona through the Clean Water or Drinking Water Revolving Fund.
