The city of Brawley owns and operates the water treatment plant and distribution system, as well as the wastewater treatment plant and collection system. Established more than 65 years ago, both systems are operated as an enterprise fund in which the cost of providing water and sewage services is funded primarily through flat rate user fees. The city
recently constructed a new water treatment plant with a design capacity of 15 mgd, which can be expanded in the future to 30 mgd.
The current project will address the following problems:
To upgrade and expand the wastewater treatment plant, as well as to
improve the water distribution and wastewater collection systems. The
