Lemon Cove Sanitary District
Present Land Use
Existing wastewater pond/ Agriculture (AE-40)

Document Description
The Project will involve improving an existing wastewater treatment plant owned and operated by the District under Waste Discharge Requirements Order No. 94-348. The existing pond was evaluated and determined to be in poor condition, thus improved disposal alternatives are necessary to maintain the ·highest levels of service. It was determined that an alternate disposal system within the existing footprint of the WWTP facility was feasible. Upgrades to the existing WWTP will include the following: Installation of a 20,000 gallon (10-foot diameter by 35-foot long) septic tank; installation of a 4,000 square foot leach field and associated leach lines; and connection to the existing sewer collection system (with an 8-inch influent line).
