Document Description
The Project includes the construction and operation of a composting facility with an advanced, circular-turned aerated pile (cTAP) composting system designed to process 185,000 tons of organic materials per year. The Project would include a 557 ft x 557 ft concrete aerated pad for composting operations, and minor structures including a small office, operations control container, employee break room and bathroom, an entrance/exit scale, and parking. The Project would also include composting system facilities within the concrete aerated pad such as a stockpile and storage area, biofilters, and leachate and stormwater storage containment structures. The Project also proposes to construct a Class A well with a 50-foot concrete seal, an 800-gallon septic tank and pump, and two sets of hydrants and standpipes (one for reclaimed City of Petaluma water and one for on-site reservoir water). Separate from the composing operation, an Agricultural Products Pad is proposed to allow for the development of custom blends, planter mixes, storage of amendments and stabilized compost, and other agricultural products for use in the local agricultural community.
