Document Description
The North Area Recovery Station (NARS) Master Plan 2020-2030 (Master Plan or Plan) project is building and systems improvements necessary to meet the greater Sacramento region’s waste management needs currently and beyond the final plan year of 2030. The Master Plan includes recommendations for immediate, near-term, and long-term improvements. The project improvements would occur over the course of four phases. The improvements include the following. Expansion of the “Shed” by 40,000 sq ft to a total area of 75,000 sq ft and construction of a new, separate 119,000 square foot building intended for commercial vehicles only (“Packer Building”), both to be built to accommodate more customers and more tonnage of the various permitted waste types, Demolition of existing 5,000 sq ft Administration Building and reconstruction of a 10,000 sq ft Administration Building at a new location near the front of the property, Reduction of the 65,000 sq ft open-air area for receiving yard waste to 30,000 sq ft, Reduction of the 18,000 sq ft total open-air area at various locations for receiving various customer-separated non-hazardous wastes. These activities will largely be relocated to “the Shed”, Demolition of all existing scales and scale-houses, and replacement with five scales and three scale-houses at the main entry/exit location, and construction of two automated scales for commercial customers only at different locations. Reduction of the existing storm water storage detention basin to a single basin. Construction of an active storm water suspended solids removal plant if future regular monitoring results exceed permitted values. The NARS Master Plan project includes revisions to a Solid Waste Facilities Permit (SWFP) issued by the California Department of Resources Recycling and Recovery (CalRecycle). The project will also update the California General Permit for Storm Water Discharges Associated with Industrial Activities issued by the State Water Quality Control Board.
