Document Description
The City proposes to upgrade the existing slow sand surface water treatment facility at the Corralitos Filter Plant located in the community of Corralitos with a membrane treatment system. Converting the existing sand filter plant to a membrane filtration plant would allow the City to shift the majority of its water diversion to the winter months, when water is more plentiful. As proposed, the existing structure that houses the sand filter will be replaced with a new structure within the same building envelope. Three new solids dewatering lagoons will be added within existing landscaped areas. The new building is desinged to preserve the architectural style of the existing facility. All new construction will be screened with vegetation to minimize visual impacts from Eureka Canyon Road.
