Document Description
Project involves a CUP for the development of a Membrane Filtration/Reverse Osmosis facility (MF/RO) designed to provide advanced treatment for recycled water produced at the City of Escondido's Hale Ave Resource Recovery Facility (HARRF) for agricultural uses. Utility projects, including processing, storage, and distribution facility for water are permitted uses within commercial zones, subject to the approval of a CUP. The proposed MF/RO would utilize membrane filtration (i.e., microfiltration (MF) or ultrafiltration (UF) membranes] and reverse osmosis (RO) technologies sized for a total production capacity of 2.0 million gallons per day (mgd) with the ability to accommodate the installation of future equipment to provide an additional 1.0 mgd of production capacity. The proposed project would consist of two buildings, both with a maximum height of approx. 31'. The MF/RO Process Building (21,729 SF) would house the MF/RO equipment, pumps, electrical rooms, control rooms, and meeting rooms. The Chemical Building (14,115 SF) would house the transfer pumps and accommodate the storage of chemical used in treatment process. The project also includes several above ground storage tanks with a maximum height of 30' (300,000 gal influent tank, 160,000 gal inter-process tank, and 820,000 gal product storage tank), and a 1,500 kW emergency backup generator, as well as various above and below ground pipes and support infrastructure. The perimeter of the sit would be secured by a combination of new six-foot-high masonry walls and decorative wrought iron fencing. Access would be provided via two driveways on E. Washington Ave. A limited number of employees would visit the site for daily inspections (as needed), monthly routine facility maintenance, and delivery and removal of chemicals.
