Document Description
In 2017, Stanislaus County completed a CEQA Initial Study (IS) to evaluate potential environmental impacts associated with expanding operations at the Robert Gioletti & Sons Dairy (Dairy). The 2017 IS determined that the proposed expansion would result in less than significant impacts to environmental resources, and a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) was issued for the Dairy expansion. The Dairy has determined that a new supply well is required to meet the operating water demand. This Supplement IS evaluates impacts associated with permitting installation and operation of a new supply well. The existing barn and cooling water demand for the operation is met by two wells located west of the main dairy complex on the north side of West Main Street (Well 1 and Well 2, respectively). These wells extract water from the confined aquifer system that underlies the Corcoran Clay. The proposed well will be located at the main Dairy complex at 9769 W. Main Street (APN 022-041-006). Operation of the proposed well would thus shift some or all of the groundwater pumping to meet the Dairy water demand from the confined to the unconfined aquifer systems
