A CUP to conduct a business engaged in the collection, storage, delivery, and sale of non-potable water to residents in the Southern Humboldt area for primarily agricultural use (e.g. irrigation). The business proposes to operate on an approximately 5-acre portion of a 34-acre parcel which is currently developed with two existing single family residences, a detached garage, a barn, and a studio. To supply water for the business, the project proposed to collect rainwater by covering approximately 83,000 sf of ground with black pond liner tarpaulin, which will be weighted down with large concrete blocks in a grid pattern and used as an impervious surface to facilitate capture of runoff during rainfall events. Captured water will be directed into and stored in a series of large water bladders, which will be located on mostly level terrain and anchored to comply with the County flood regulations.
