San Andreas, CA – Calaveras County Water District (CCWD) Officials say a new state permit will allow them to use recycled waste water to keep the greens, green. This month the State Water Resource Control Board issued a Notice of Applicability (NOA) permit for CCWD’s LaContenta Wastewater Treatment facility.
CCWD Spokesperson Bill Perley says, “We’re the first golf course in the state of California to get this permit. It gives the golf course much more flexibility in their operations. It’s going to allow us to change our delivery system to them and it’s going to allow us to maximize the recycled water use, so it’s a good all around project for everybody.”
Perley says the permit allows the District to put water directly into the storage pond on the golf course and they can empty the recycled water storage pond every year.
