Present Land Use
Property is currently in unincorporated Sacramento County and is used for agricultural use to grow feed crops. There are two small rental homes on the site, but one is abandoned and the other would be removed. The property is Ag. and Ag. Res. and Zoned Ag80 and AR10.

Document Description
The City of Galt proposes to acquire (lease) 130-171 acres of land east of its wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) and use it to plant crops and irrigate them with secondary treated effluent. The project involves constructing and operating facilities to convey treated wastewater effluent from the WWTP, under the UPRR tracks, and on to the adjacent agricultural lands and then sublease those lands to a farmer who will grow acceptable crops and use the treated effluent for irrigation and reclamation activities under contract with the City. Berms/levees will be constructed around the entire perimeter of the site and directly around Skunk Creek which flows through the site. Irrigation return flows would thereby by captured to prevent runoff of any treated effluent directly into Skunk Creek or from traveling off site. Recapture ditches or detention basins will be constructed and all runoff would be directed back to the WWTP. Maintenance roads would be constructed on top of the levees and a perimeter fence with appropriate signage will be installed. A Conditional Use Permit from Sacramento County is required to irrigate agricultural crops with secondary treated effluent.
