The City’s Water Facilities Master Plan describes the infrastructure needed to provide water service at build-out of the General Plan. These facilities include groundwater supply wells, water treatment facilities, as well as reservoirs and pipelines. City staff determined that master-planned facilities consisting of Phase II of the Eastside Water Treatment Facility (Phase II EWTF) were necessary to support proposed development in Chino. This phase of improvements for the EWTF consists of the 790 zone booster station, a 4 million gallon welded steel potable water storage tank, and a 790 pressure zone 24-inch transmission pipeline delivering potable water from the Eastside facility, east along Schaefer, south along Bon View, tying into the City’s distribution system at Merrill Ave. Portions of the Phase II EWTF (excluding the 24-inch transmission pipeline) have been constructed on City owned property, located at 7537 Schaefer Avenue in the City of Ontario.

Watson Land Company (Developer) was conditioned by the City to construct the improvements described above and coordinated construction of the facilities.



One of the last steps necessary to close-out the Phase II EWTF project is for the City to formally accept the constructed facility. As of May 8, 2016, Phase II EWTF had been satisfactorily constructed to meet City specifications and all punch list items were addressed. Upon completion and final acceptance, the Phase II EWTF shall become the sole exclusive property of the City to operate and maintain. The water supply for the treatment facility is from City-owned wells. Treated water from Phase II EWTF will be distributed to City water customers at the sole discretion of the City. Staff recommends the City acceptance of the following infrastructure:

1.              790 zone booster pump station (completed May 8, 2016).

2.              24-inch potable water transmission pipeline from the EWTF beginning, running east along Schaefer Avenue and south along Bon View Avenue tying into the City’s distribution system are Merrill Avenue (completed February 19, 2016).

3.              4 million gallon welded steel potable water storage tank (completed February 19, 2016, warranty repairs completed June 3, 2019).

Phase II EWTF has been in operation for the last three-years.  In that time, City staff worked closely with the Developer to rectify any and all deficiencies for Phase II. The original warranty period for each replacement item has been fulfilled and is now expired. Upon the final acceptance, the City will be responsible for any repairs, replacement, or reconstruction of any defective or otherwise materially unsatisfactory portion of the Phase II EWTF.
