Document Description
The proposed project consists of an ATF at a yet to be determined location in the NCMA, an advanced purified water storage tank, an equalization tank, a pump station, distribution pipelines, injection wells, monitoring wells, and one new production well. The project would alter the pumping regime of existing, operational production wells in the project area and also would include construction of one new production well to optimize groundwater production in the area. The project area, which is located approximately seven miles south of the city of San Luis Obispo, spans approximately nine miles to allow for appropriate spacing of the proposed injection wells. From west to east, the project site is approximately one mile wide or less (extending inland from the coast) for known project components other than the new production well. Some conceptual project components may be located further inland, as described in more detail below under Project Features. The total acreage and parcel numbers for many of the project components, including the water distribution pipelines, injection wells, monitoring wells, the ATF, and potential agricultural irrigation areas, are either preliminary or not known at this time. The preliminary locations of known project components and locations of the existing production wells are shown on Figure 4. The location of the ATF is unknown at this time, but it would occupy approximately two acres of available land in the NCMA. Additional project components will include distribution pipelines to transport treated wastewater to the ATF, advanced purified water distribution pipelines to transport water from the ATF to the injection wells, and potentially agricultural irrigation and pipelines to transport water to those irrigated lands; however, those locations are unknown at this time.
