The current project planning focuses on a change from river discharge to agricultural reuse of treated effluent as the primary disposal mode. About 19,000 acre-feet of effluent would be made available annually for agricultural reuse. Continuous effluent discharge to the San Joaquin River would be replaced with intermittent winter discharge of higher quality effluent at greatly increased flow rates. This EIS has emphasized an evaluation of the impacts of urbanization, particularly those affecting prime and unique farmland. The city of Modesto has adopted or is actively considering a variety of planning and zoning measures to mitigate the projected urbanization impacts.
