Document Description
Component 7 is part of the larger Santa Barbara Countywide IRWM Implementation Project that was awarded funds by the State Water Board as part of the IRWM Grant Program. It was approved for $4.8 million. Component 7 involves expanding the capacity of the current facilities from 9.5 mgd to ~13.5 mgd. The City of Santa Maria Wastewater Treatment Plant treats, recharges, and delivers water from the State Water Project back into the groundwater basin through percolation ponds at the 65% reliability factor. Component 7 will include a minimum of eight new percolation ponds for recharge on 40 acres of land purchased for the development of this open network of ponds and lagoons. The State Water Board has not previously made findings regarding Component 7 pursuant to the CEQA. Significant and unavoidable adverse impacts will remain after mitigation and are acceptable and are outweighted by specific social, economic, and other benefits of Component 7.
