Avalon Street, Lompoc, California.

landfill operations and background contributions, to assess the facility’s storm water issues

Background
The City of Lompoc Landfill at 700 Avalon Street is regulated under California’s Industrial
General Permit for Storm Water Discharges associated with Industrial Activities, Order No.
2014-0057-DWQ (NPDES No. CAS000001 issued by the State Water Resources Control
Board.
The Landfill faces a difficult stormwater situation due to the nature of the local
diatomaceous earth soils, ongoing industrial activities required at a landfill and the size of
the facility (115 total acres, with 39 acres permitted for disposal). The watershed above this
canyon landfill is approximately 400 acres. The canyon landfill has limited available space
for new BMP treatment options and is constrained by the subtitle D footprint within the
canyon.
Depending on work performance of the Selected Consulting Engineer on the initial phase of
the project, additional project phases may be contracted to complete
additional/recommended storm water improvements.
A more detailed scope of work will be coordinated between the City and the selected
consultant after the City’s review and ranking of the SOQs.
The project will be funded by City of Lompoc Solid Waste Landfill Funds.
For all submittals during the project work, the consultant shall, at no additional cost to the
City, correct errors, omissions, and unworkable and/or improper design or drafting whether
discovered during or after the completion of the City’s review process.
