Document Title
Charnock Well Field Restoration Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Document Description
The project involves implementation of a water treatment system and other improvements that would help to remove groundwater contamination from the Charnock groundwater sub-basin and restore this resource as a water supply for the City of Santa Monica. As part of the project upgrades, improvements will be required at two existing City-operated water service facilities. The City is planning to return the Charnock groundwater wells to full production using a treatment system to be constructed at the Charnock well field. This system will use granular activated carbon filtration to treat water from the three contaminated wells at the well field. Water treatment improvements are also proposed for the Santa Monica Water Treatment Plant. Improvements for the SMWTP may include two salt water wells, as part of a water softening system.
