Proposed 208 Plan Amendment - Gold Canyon Sewer Company

A proposed amendment to the CAG 208 Area Wide Management Plan. The amendment addresses a change in effluent management for the Gold Canyon Sewer Company (GCSC) service area. The proposed change will allow GCSC to discharge effluent to an adjacent unnamed wash, which flows south towards the Gila River. The discharge would be in accordance with the requirements of the new Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) General Permit for Infrequent Discharges.

The allowed discharges are described below. See Section 2 for additional information.

  1. Planned Discharges - Occurring no more frequently than twice per calendar year, with duration of no more than 14 days, and with at least 30 days between discharges.
  2. Emergency Discharges - Occurring no more frequently than three times per coverage term (5 years), and with duration of no more than 14 days.

The benefits to GRWRF and the local community would include reducing stagnant water conditions, eliminating the cost to haul effluent, and eliminating the traffic issues associated with haul trucks driving between the Gold Canyon treatment plant and the receiving plant.
