Document Description
On December 18, 2018, the Soquel Creek Water District (District) certified the Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR), adopted Findings of Fact (including a Statement of Overriding Considerations with regard to the significant and potentially significant impacts that cannot be mitigated to a level of less than significant, despite the imposition of mitigation measures) and a Mitigation Monitoring and Reporting Program (MMRP), and approved the Pure Water Soquel: Groundwater Replenishment and Seawater Intrusion Prevention Project (Project). The Project will supplement natural recharge of the Santa Cruz Mid-County Groundwater Basin with purified water. The purified water will be produced from existing secondary effluent from the Santa Cruz Wastewater Treatment Facility (SC WWTF) and delivered to treatment facilities located in either the City of Santa Cruz or unincorporated Santa Cruz County. Purified water will then be used to recharge the aquifer. As part of the Project, the District evaluated several designs for the Project and worked with the City of Santa Cruz to conclude that siting the tertiary treatment facility component of the Project at SC WWTF would be in the best interest of both parties. (See, e.g., Draft EIR, pp. 3-8 through 3-19.) On April 16, 2019, the District Board of Directors approved the District's construction of the tertiary treatment facility at SC WWTF and the construction of the advanced water purification treatment facility offsite.
