The City of Santa Barbara Public Works Department proposes changes to the existing Cater Water Treatment Plant, which provides conventional pretreatment and filtration treatment of drinking water for the entire City of Santa Barbara and also to the Montecito, Carpenteria, and Goleta Water Districts. The improvements involve upgrades of aging equipment, changes needed to meet upcoming drinking water regulations and standards mandated by the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act, and process and physical improvements to increase Plant reliability, efficiency and security of the overall water treatment operation. Project components include addition of a new operations annex building to house electrical and chemical equipment (6,500 square feet); replacement and upgrades of filters and other equipment and processes; addition of three replacement evaporation basins for solids handling (combined are 65,000 square feet); new paved driveway for internal access and circulation and replacement parking lot with eight spaces (5,200 square feet); drainage improvements; perimeter fencing and landscaping.
