Document Title
General Waste Discharge Requirements for Composting Operations
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Document Description
The State Water Board will consider adoption of general waste discharge requirements that would provide coverage for composting operations (General Order) in the State of California for use by the Regional Water Boards to protect water quality. The proposed General Order would apply to all areas used for the receipt, processing, and storage for the conversion that address appropriate water quality protection measures at existing and proposed composting operations. The construction of new composting operations and the expansion of existing composting operations would be regulated by local land use authorities; this General Order would not permit the actual construction of any new facilities or the expansion of existing facilities.
