Document Description
The proposed project consists of the issuance of waste discharge requirements to One World Beef Packers, LLC existing slaughterhouse (aka beef plant) in Brawley for the discharge of up to 238,000 GPD of treated industrial wastewater onto onsite unlined ponds for storage and reclaimed for agricultural beneficial on approximately 140 acres of farmland to grow Bermuda grass or other fodder crops for cattle feed. The project includes the construction and operation of a new BioFiltro wastewater treatment system for the beef plant. This CEQA review is needed to justify the issuance of new WDRs by the Regional Water Board to authorize the reuse of reclaimed water for agricultural uses on and off the site.
