Calico Ghost Town Water Treatment Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Present Use: Small water system serving Calico Ghost Town Regional Park; Zoning/General Plan: Resource Conservation

Document Description
The project proposes to install a small reverse osmosis water treatment unit located in proximity to and generally south of the existing sewer treatment ponds located south of the park entrance. The raw water from the two wells would then be pumped to the water treatment unit and the treated water would then be pumped to the two existing reservoirs. Waste brine resulting from the treatment of the water would then drain to evaporation ponds for disposal. These ponds would be at a depth of approximately 6 feet, and will be lined to prevent contaminants from re-entering the water table. If necessary, during winter months waste brine may be pumped out of the ponds for off-site disposal.
