Background and Project Description: The Draft Recycled Water Master Plan (Draft RWMP) sets forth a
plan to expand the recycled water system in the Santa Clarita Valley to offset potable water demands.
The existing recycled water system is referred to as Phase 1 and provides approximately 450 acre-feet
per year (afy) of recycled water to golf courses and median landscapes. Phase 2 includes four separate
phases (2A, 2B, 2C and 2D) that will expand the recycled water system to the east, west and south
portions of the Santa Clarita Valley. The Central Park Recycled Water Main Extension (Phase 2A)
Project will provide recycled water to the service areas of Santa Clarita Water Division (SCWD) and
Valencia Water Company (VWC) by using recycled water from the Valencia Water Reclamation Plant
(WRP). It is estimated that up to 560 afy would be available to SCWD and VWC to serve nearby existing
irrigation customers along the pipeline alignment.
As proposed, up to a 24-inch transmission pipeline would originate at the Valencia WRP at The Old
Road and extend for approximately 5.25 miles, or up to 33,000 linear feet, along Rye Canyon Road and
Newhall Ranch Road. At the Newhall Ranch Road and Bouquet Canyon intersection, the proposed
Project will continue in one of two directions to Central Park. The first alternate alignment would be
north along Bouquet Canyon Road, while the second alternate direction would be east along Newhall
Ranch Road to the River Village development and then north to Central Park. This pipeline would
serve industrial and non-potable irrigation demands adjacent to the alignment. Anchor irrigation
customers would be Valencia High School, Valencia Heritage Park, Bridgeport Park and Central Park.
