Document Description
This project is a conditional use permit to request authorization for construction of three water tank farms, three loading stations and associated spring water delivery pipes from several of the natural springs located on the property. Approximately three acres of the lot will be paved and covered by structures and the rest of the 189 acres will be left as open space. A full-time caretaker will inhabit the existing residence on site, which is served by a domestic well and septic system. Water tank farms will provide room for up to eight water storage tanks on a concrete slab foundation measuring approximately 30X60 feet. Tanks will vary in size from 10,000 to 12,000 gallons each. To minimize the risk of rupture due to San Andreas Fault seismic activates, the tanks will be constructed of seamless polyurethane and their height will be restricted to a maximum of 14 feet. Up to 40 trucks in a 24-hour period will load and export water from the site. The area will be secured with an 8-foot high chain link fence enclosure. Grading for all three loading areas will move and re-compact approximately 1200 cubic yards of soil.
