Present Land Use
The project site is an existing, fenced, District-owned site which currently contains two groundwater extraction wells and an arsenic treatment facility. The Project site is surrounded by open space to the north and west and open space and sparse residential development to the east and south.

Document Description
The Project consists of construction and operation of a sludge drying bed on the District's existing Arsenic Treatment Plant No. 2 site. Sludge from Plant No. 2 would be conveyed directly from the backwash waste holding tank onsite to the sludge drying bed, and partially dried iron/arsenic sludge would be transferred from the Arsenic Treatment Plant No. 1 site to the sludge drying bed. The sludge would be dried in the sludge drying bed before collected and disposed of offsite. This is a common method of handling sludge at water treatment facilities.
