Infiltration Outreach

Wastewater Division Infiltration Outreach

Nampa is considering infiltration, a treatment process that would take recycled water from the City's treatment plant and apply it over a designated area of land near Nampa. Through this process, the City would use recycled water to recharge the aquifer underlying land south of Lake Lowell.

Specific site conditions are needed for infiltration to be effective. The City has identified several locations in Canyon County where infiltration could possibly work.

A team of wastewater and hydrogeological experts conducted background water quality testing using existing wells at several sites in Canyon County deemed suitable for infiltration. The background water quality results for these sites were inconclusive and thus further testing was commenced to evaluate each site's soil characteristics. This testing is currently ongoing and will continue through late spring. Should this testing show suitable conditions are present, this option will continue to be evaluated and more testing occur.

If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Karla Nelson, Nampa's Public Involvement Coordinator (208) 468-5523.
