Reclaimed Water Irrigation Project Subsequent EIR for the San Benito County Water District Recycled Water Facility Phase I Demonstration Project
Document Type
SIR - Supplemental EIR
Present Land Use
Airport, Agriculture, Various

Document Description
The proposed project consists of developing reclaimed water uses to beneficially reuse tertiary treated wastewater from the City of Hollister Domestic Wastewater Treatment Plant (DWTP). Five sites have been identified for potential use include the Hollister Municipal Airport, Brookhollow Ranch, Pacific Sod Farm, San Juan Oaks Golf Club, and the proposed Riverside Park. Under the proposed project, one or more of these sites comprising a total of 200-350 acres would be supplied with reclaimed water. The potential uses of reclaimed water consist of two types: 1) application to non-irrigated sites for the cultivation of turf and/or grass hay (Hollister Municipal Airport, Brookhollow Ranch, and the proposed Riverside Park site); and 2) application to currently irrigated areas to supplement groundwater and/or CVP use (Pacific Sod Farm and San Juan Oaks Golf Course). The proposed project implements reclaimed water uses identified for Phase I of the City of Hollister's Long-Term Wastewater Management Plan (LTWMP).
