Document Description
The State Water Board is preparing a General Order for land application of treated wastewater from small domestic wastewater and treatment systems that will be applicable statewide. The General Order will allow a monthly average flow rate up to 100,000 gpd and will allow the use of recycled water consistent with California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 22 regulations. Wastewater treatment systems will vary from septic tanks, activated sludge treatment facilities, to pond facilities. The minimum level of treatment will be determined by requirements of the General Order, Regional Water Board Basin Plans, CCR Title 22, and mitigation measures required by future site-specific CEQA evaluations. The General Order will be used by Regional Water Boards to streamline permitting of small domestic wastewater treatment systems, which typically are relatively low threat to groundwater quality.
