Wastewater

Crystal Geyser is 100% committed to the safe disposal of all wastewater discharges. Wastewater will be processed by the City of Mt. Shasta’s wastewater treatment system, in accordance with local, state and federal environmental requirements

  • New “bottle rinse” technology allowed for change in process from wet to dry
  • Enables significant wastewater discharge reduction from 250,000 gallons per day (gpd) to 54,000 gpd
  • Ensures that most of the water we pump will go directly in the bottle.
  • Use of our permitted on-site leachfield will meet the requirements of the Regional Water Quality Control Board. (RWQCB)  RWQCB is responsible for ensuring the safety of groundwater.
