Document Description
Carmel Area Wastewater District (CAWD) proposes to prune existing eucalyptus trees at the CAWD Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP). The pruning is being done to control the growth of the trees and to mitigate falling branches. The existing eucalyptus trees have the potential to fall or drop debris which could damage existing wastewater treatment plant infrastructure. Where eucalyptus trees are spreading new seedlings, new eucalyptus trees would be removed as part of the work to avoid propagation of this non-native species. There are a total of approximately ninety (90) full grown eucalyptus trees surrounding the WWTP. The existing eucalyptus trees were planted during the 1980’s to create a visual screen around the existing wastewater treatment plant. Many of the existing trees have grown to be much higher than they need to be to screen the existing facility. Existing eucalyptus trees around the WWTP range from about 75 to 90 feet tall. CAWD plans to prune the trees to 42 feet tall along the Southern boundary of the WWTP, and 52 feet tall along the Westerly side of the Northern property line.
