Abstract:

This Annex describes feasibility and costs of all water supply projects and alternative programs for the Washington Metropolitan Area WMA. The Annex can be divided into two parts. The first describes the water supply projects investigated. These projects include upstream reservoirs, such as Verona and Sixes Bridge, local impoundments e.g., Catoctin Creek and Goose Creek, raw-water interconnections, groundwater withdrawal, indirect wastewater reuse, and the use of estuarine water. The second section describes and analyzes the Northeastern United States Water Supply NEWS Study programs in terms of ability of component projects to meet program objectives. Individual introductions, descriptions and tabular evaluations are presented for each project. The Appendixes include bases for construction cost estimates, project components basis for operation and maintenance, standby maintenance and start-up and shut-down costs. Basic design criteria such as expected influent or source quality and project effluent water quality objectives are also presented. Author
