About the Vineyard Surface Water Treatment Plant

The Vineyard Surface Water Treatment Plant (Vineyard Plant) is currently under construction in south Sacramento County on an 80-acre parcel at the northeast corner of Florin and Knox Roads (future Vineyard Road), and one mile east of Bradshaw Road. This historic project will ultimately provide the Sacramento County Water Agency with the capacity to treat and distribute up to 50 million gallons of surface water per day.

Water diverted from the Sacramento River through the new FRWA intake Facility will be pumped to the Vineyard Plant, where it will be treated to the highest drinking water standards for delivery to customers. Historically, most of the water delivered to customers has been water from underground aquifers. The additional surface water supply from the Sacramento River will reduce demand on groundwater and allow aquifers to naturally replenish.

In addition to treating surface water, the Vineyard Plant will become the operations and communication center. The 35,000 square foot administration building will serve as a repair shop, warehouse, and a corporation yard for maintenance vehicles and supplies. Upon completion of phase one, the Vineyard Plant will treat up to 50 million gallons of water per day, which is enough to service over 40,000 customers. Upon project completion the plant will treat up to 100 million gallons per day to meet growing demands.

Construction of the Vineyard Plant began in April 2008 and is expected to be completed in 2011. For more information, visit here.
