Overview

Grant Description
Description:
These funds for the North American Development Bank (NADB) will provide assistance to implement the Project Development Assistance Program (PDAP) in accordance with objectives, responsibilities, and procedures, described in the Standard Operating Procedures dated May 2011 or its latest revision. The activities funded with Project Development Assistance Program are to provide grant financing to nine subrecipients for costs associated with the preliminary engineering, geotechnical studies, surveys, environmental information document, public participation, and final design assistance to eligible drinking water and wastewater infrastructure projects selected as part of its prioritization process. The nine projects identified in the work plan meet the Category 1 priority and will be developed by North American Development Bank using Project Development Assistance Program funding for certification. The expected outcomes are to establish and manage an effective and comprehensive Project Development Assistance Program that leads to improve and protect water quality and public health for citizens throughout the United States Environmental Protection Agency Region 6's United States/Mexico border area up to (62 miles on each side of the border).

Activities:
There will be nine project development actions taken under this grant. All workplan activities will meet the Category 1 priority established for the Border Water Infrastructure Program's Standard Operating Procedures dated May 2011. The following is a description of the activities to be performed for each of the nine projects.

1. El Paso County, Texas - Montana Vista: The project will provide adequate wastewater collection services to the residents of previously unserved areas of the Montana Vista colonias. The project will decommission on-site systems including cesspools and failing septic tanks. The project is expected to protect groundwater from potential contamination and to protect public health by eliminating potential human contact with untreated groundwater.

2. El Paso County, Texas - Upper Valley: The project will provide adequate wastewater collection services to the residents of previously unserved areas of the Upper Valley areas of El Paso County. The project will decommission on-site systems including cesspools and failing septic tanks. The project is expected to protect groundwater from potential contamination and to protect public health by eliminating potential human contact with untreated groundwater.

3. Ciudad Juarez, Mexico: The south-south basin of Ciudad Juarez has a wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) that was constructed in 2018 with a capacity to treat up to 11.41 million gallons per day (MGD). Currently, the wastewater generated in the basin served by this treatment facility exceeds the capacity of the WWTP. As a result, approximately 5.13 million gallons per day of untreated wastewater is being discharged to an irrigation canal that conveys untreated wastewater into the Rio Grande River.

4. Ciudad Acuna, Mexico: Exposure to untreated wastewater due to surface discharges in the sewer collection system, the absence of treatment or inadequate on-site disposal. The existing collection system has exceeded its useful life and presents leaks and ruptures in various collectors, causing surface discharges to the Las Vacas Stream, which discharges into the Rio Grande River.

5. Piedras Negras, Mexico: Exposure to untreated wastewater due to surface discharges in the sewer collection system, the absence of treatment or inadequate on-site disposal. The existing collection system has exceeded its useful life and presents leaks and ruptures in various collectors, causing surface discharges to the Los Presidentes Creek, which discharges to the Rio Escondido River and eventually to the Rio Grande River.

6. Tornillo, Texas: The project will provide first-time access to the wastewater collection system to eliminate exposure to untreated wastewater.
