Present Land Use
The City’s WRF consistently meets all requirements except the effluent limitation for chloride. The project would address chloride issues by adding an advanced treatment system to the existing WRF site, which would treat 2,500 to 3,000 acre-feet per year and reduce chloride concentrations in treated effluent to achieve a final chloride concentration below the limitation. The proposed reverse osmosis system would be installed in an approximately 10,000-square-foot building at the WRF.

Document Description
The project includes the construction and operation of advanced water treatment equipment on the existing WRF site. No increase in wastewater treatment capacity is planned. Therefore, the Class 1 exemption is applicable. The advanced treatment system building footprint would be relatively small (10,000 square feet), and would be consistent with the existing infrastructure at the WRF site. Therefore, the Class 3 exemption is applicable. The purpose of the proposed project is to provide water treatment to address high concentrations of chloride in groundwater. The overall objective is to enable final compliance with the Waste Discharge Requirements Order No. R4-2018-0022 and a CDO for chloride concentration (Order No. R4-2018-0023). Therefore, the Class 30 exemption is applicable.
