Document Description
Smith River Rancheria proposes to construct an off-site wastewater collection system and treatment and disposal facility to serve existing and future uses of the Smith River Rancheria. A variance request is required since the uses are not located on the project site. Effluent will be collected from multiple locations within the Rancheria and pumped to the new treatment facility. Two creek crossings will be required in order to located the needed piping. Directional drilling underneath the streambed is proposed for the Gilbert Creek crossing. White pipeline will cross Lopez Creek within the roadbed above the existing culvert. Effluent will be disposed of either in on-site leachfields or used for spray irrigation of non-edible crops grown on-site.
