In 2002, the Snyderville Basin Water Reclamation District (SBWRD) determined the need to have a master plan for treatment and beneficial use or disposal for the solids generated at their two water reclamation facilities. There are two general drainage areas, one served by the 4.0 mgd
East Canyon Water Reclamation Facility (WRF), and the other served by the 2.0 mgd Silver Creek WRF. Both WRFs produce unclassified, dewatered wastewater solids that are currently beneficially used in the E. T. Technologies soil regeneration operation at the Salt Lake Valley Solids Disposal
Facility for landfill top dressing (alternative daily cover [ADC]). The SBWRD service area is growing rapidly, adding year-round residences and businesses as well as vacation homes and facilities to accommodate seasonal visitors. This growth is leading to increased wastewater
flows so the goal of this plan is to: Identify an implementation strategy to enable reliable solids management for the next 20 years in a socially, financially, and environmentally responsible manner for the Snyderville Basin Water Reclamation District. The
Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC), the SBWRD staff, and CH2M HILL worked together throughout the master planning effort to recommend an overall plan that encompasses specific alternatives as well as several ongoing projects that may prove feasible for the SBWRD in the future. This flexible
plan allows the SBWRD to implement specific improvements at both plants without affecting potential beneficial use or disposal changes in the future.
