The project includes approximately 47.57 acres of cannabis canopy within temporary hoop structures, a security shed, existing access roads, harvest storage, composting, a water storage reservoir, water storage tanks, a parking area, and other associated infrastructure. The cannabis canopy portion of the cultivation project will be set back a minimum of 125 feet from the Santa Ynez River, and a minimum of 100 feet from Shale Creek. The water source for the project is two existing wells, consisting of one existing on-site well located at latitude 34.60592, longitude -120.28874 and one existing well located on an adjacent land parcel at latitude 34.607509, longitude -120.29938. Both wells pump water from alluvial material and are located adjacent to the Santa Ynez River. The project will divert a maximum of 85 acre-feet of water annually for irrigation and other cultivation-related uses.
