Las Gallinas Secondary Treatment and Recycled Water Plant Upgrade Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Document Description
The proposed project is the LGVSD, the District Secondary Treatment Upgrade located at the LGVSD wastewater treatment plant on Smith Ranch Road in the Las Gallinas Valley between the cities of San Rafael and Novato in Nor Cal. The current WWTP facility is an active wastewater treatment plant that serves approximately 30,000 customers in northern San Rafael. The district currently provides secondary treatment process and facilities at the WWTP, and includes replacement of the force main that heads southwest along the WWTP access road. The total project area is 13.47 acres. The project will provide an expansion of the plant to handle peak wet weather daily flows of 18 million gallons per day, doubling the plant's wet weather treatment capacity. As part of the upgrade, the recycled water facility will also be expanded to treat its designed capacity of 5.4 MGD to max the plant's ability to provide recycled water. The project will involve removal of old structures, construction of new structures, and the piping between them. The main road will also be realigned and raised from the middle of the facility to the perimeter to account for potential sea level rise issues along with storm events.
