Greenwood Dairy

Permitting/Waste Water Pond Design

VESTRA provides permitting, regulatory compliance, engineering and sampling services to many dairies in Northern California. Since 2004 we have assisted the the Greenwood Dairy located in Orland, California. Services have included the permitting of an expansion of the dairy herd from 1800 to 3500 milking head.    VESTRA coordinated the lengthy permitting process, which has included addressing the extensive requirements of the Glenn County CAFO element as well as the Report of Waste Discharge required by the RWQCB.  The expansion included the design and construction of additional freestall barns and doubling the waste water pond capacity. The new ponds were designed to meet RWQCB Title 27 requirements.  We have continued to provide required groundwater monitoring and reporting assistance.
