The Development Plan Projects consist of the construction, operations, and maintenance of: (1) a 1,500 square foot Title 22 compliant tertiary wastewater treatment system; (2) Essential Services Building and parking lot; and (3) five solar structures and panels. The recycled water produced from the tertiary wastewater treatment system would be used to help irrigate the adjacent existing 55.63-acre Santa Barbara cemetery. The use of recycled water for the irrigation of the cemetery will allow the cemetery to cease use of potable water for irrigation purposes.
