Santa-Fernwood Wastewater Reuse Project 

Project Sponsor 

Santa-Fernwood Water and Sewer District   


The purpose of this project is to construct a reclaimed water system in the communities of Santa and Fernwood, Idaho, to decrease nutrient loads in Coeur d’Alene Lake. The project is jointly managed by the Fernwood Water and Sewer District and Santa Water and Sewer District and will involve acquiring land and constructing a water system, which will provide reclaimed water for agricultural/silvicultural purposes. 


This project was awarded $7.01 million from Governor Little’s Leading Idaho initiative. 


Land has been acquired for the reuse portion of this project. The water reuse system is still in the preliminary design phase. 


This project is expected to reduce phosphorus loads to Coeur d’Alene Lake by approximately 660 pounds annually.
