Document Description
CCSD is proposing the Project in response to the CCSD Board of Directors' January 30, 2014 declaration of a Stage 3 Water Shortage Emergency in Cambria. The Project involves construction and operation of emergency water facilities at the CCSD's existing San Simeon well field and percolation pond system property. The Project proposes to construct and operate: one extraction well (existing Well 9P7); an Advanced Water Treatment Plant; an injection well to the groundwater basin at San Simeon well field; an evaporation pond (rehabilitate/modify an existing storage pond); three lagoon injection wells (LIWs), which would serve as mitigation to protect Van Gordon Creek, San Simeon Creek Lagoon; and four monitoring wells. As an option to the LIWs, the existing Well 9P7 discharge pipeline/structure may be utilized to discharge directly into Van Gordon Creek adjacent to the AWTP. The Project is needed to treat brackish water and fully recharge the San Simeon Creek coastal stream aquifers with advance treated water.
