Summary

 

100% of NCCWD water comes from one SF RWS connection at San Andreas. There is
a main pump station located on the site of the Harry Tracy WTP, which pumps all the water through a 4 mile pipeline into the Milagra Ridge storage tank located in the Central District area.

 

The northern portion of the system is supplied by pumping water from the Milagra Ridge Tank site to the Christian Hill tank, then distributing it to the customers via gravity. The southern District’s distribution hub, at Royce Tank Site, is supplied via gravity by the Milagra Ridge Tank. Overall, the system is divided into 34 pressure zones, each separated by pressure reducing valves. At average daily demands, there is enough storage to supply the District with water for up to 7.2 days at typical demands and storage. A small amount of water is conveyed to San Bruno annually as a public customer.

 

The District's only other water source is the San Pedro Creek. Water rights to the creek are limited to 500 gpm between December 1 and April 30, and to 210 gpm during May. This water requires filtering and minimal treatment at the San Pedro WTP adjacent to the creek before distribution. The San Pedro facility is on line and filters creek water, as allowed by the District’s water rights, for non-potable uses.
