Document Description
Paramount Farms International, LLC proposes to increase water use during hulling operations at its Pistachio Processing Plant at 39840 El Dorado Avenue near Coalinga in Fresno County. The increased water use will result in increased wastewater flows up to 1 million gallons per day (seasonal average), 2.5 mgd (maximum), and 42 million gallons (annually). Wastewater generated during the hulling operations will be reused as supplemental irrigation water on approximately 600 acres of pistachio trees. No increase in production capacity is proposed. The project will involve trenching for installation of a new irrigation line to transfer wastewater to the new land application areas where it will be tied into the existing irrigation system.
