Document Description
The Garlic Company washes, processes, and packages fresh garlic at 18602 Zerker Road, Bakersfield, California 93312, in the NW 1/4, Section 23, Township 28 North, Range 26 East of the Mt. Diablo Meridian (APN: 091-130-22). The Garlic Company is developing a new process wastewater treatment system and moving the land treatment of process wastewater from the existing facility to Garlic Company property (99-acre land application site) a mile south in the NE 1/4 of Section 26, Township 28 South, Range 26 East of the Mt. Diablo Meridian (APN: 091-220-03,04,05). Grimmway Enterprises Inc. washes carrots at its Premier Facility, 6301 South Zerker Road, Shafter, California 93263, in Section 15, Township 28 South, Range 26 East of the Mt. Diablo Meridian (APN: 091-090-18). Grimmway will move the wash water discharge location from the Minter Field evaporation ponds to the North Kern Water Storage District spreading grounds (591 acres) in Section 27, Township 28 North, Range 26 East of the Mt. Diablo Meridian (APN: 091-190-17). The spreading grounds are located one and a half miles south of the Premier Facility. Grimmway is also proposing to increase the discharge flow from 0.3 million gallons per day to 0.7 million gallons per day. Both the Garlic Company and Grimmway Enterprises Inc. will utilize the right-of-way of Zerker Road to install parallel HDPE lines for waste discharge delivery to their respective land application sites with installation above and over the Friant-Kern Canal (Bureau of Reclamation Facility) within the City of Shafter right-of-way. The Garlic Company and Grimmway Enterprises Inc. will obtain waste discharge permits from the California Regional Water Quality Control Board for their new waste water land application systems.
