Water treatment plant construction update

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District’s Fort Irwin Water Treatment Plant construction project is underway.

Construction and ground placement of new water pipes will periodically occur on post and outside the cantonment area. Currently, tractor-trailer trucks will be in the vicinity of the construction site at Goldstone and Outer Loop Roads, northbound lanes of Outer Loop from Goldstone Road to Barstow Road and later, Barstow Road north to the water well site at Bicycle Lake. Contractors will be staging large blue PVC pipes approximately 70 feet off the roadway surface on the desert side. The staged pipe will be fenced in by orange mesh fencing. Project officials would like to remind the public to stay out of the fenced area and use caution when walking their pets in the area.

The facility is designed to treat up to six million gallons of potable water per day to the inhabitants of the National Training Center. The new WTP will use a combination of electro-dialysis reversal technology, reverse osmosis, and a mechanical evaporator to purify the water to achieve the post’s 99 percent water recovery rate requirement. The EDR separates contaminants from source water through an electrochemical process. Fort Irwin Garrison officials estimate 50,000 Soldiers train at the NTC annually and 85 percent of the permanently assigned community lives on the post.

The current system uses reverse osmosis to treat potable water at the post.
