Title
Seasonal Water Solutions Conditional Use Permit and Special Permit
Description
A CUP to conduct a business engaged in the collection, storage, delivery, and sale of non-potable water to residents in the Southern Humboldt area for primarily agricultural use (e.g. irrigation). The business proposes to operate on an approximately 5-acre portion of a 34-acre parcel which is currently developed with two existing single family residences, a detached garage, a barn, and a studio. To supply water for the business, the project proposed to collect rainwater by covering approximately 83,000 sf of ground with black pond liner tarpaulin, which will be weighted down with large concrete blocks in a grid pattern and used as an impervious surface to facilitate capture of runoff during rainfall events. Captured water will be directed into and stored in a series of large water bladders, which will be located on mostly level terrain and anchored to comply with the County flood regulations. There are currently seven (7) bladders on the acre parcel. Each is capable of storing approx. 210,000 gallons of water and were placed on the property without the benefit of County review. The project ultimately installation and use of up sixteen bladders for water storage, each capable of storing approx. 210,000 gallons of water, that when filled are approx. 8 feet in height, and are tan-earth tone in color. Each bladder will be anchored to the ground, and surrounded by an engineered berm, approx. 3 feet in height, designed to contain unintentional water release in the event of a rupture or leak. Water will be delivered using private water trucks that are independently owned and operated. Delivery of bulk water sold from the site will occur year-round, though primarily during the summer months and will operate 7 days per week. the water delivery activity will generate on average 12 truck trips per day (6 in/6 out). During periods of peak use maximum truck traffic could be four truck trips per hour (2 in/2 out), resulting in a maximum of 36 truck trips per day (18 in/ 18 out) during peak season. The approval term fo the CUP is a maximum of 15 years.
