Document Description
The FEIR for the project provided for the construction of 614 to 814 acres of spreading basins for groundwater recharge, 440 to 660 of these acres in the vicinity of the Buena Vista Canal south of Panama Lane. Subsequent to FEIR certification and adoption, a 70-acre parcel with characteristics suitable for use as a recharge basin has become available. This parcel consists of 27 acres of land excavated for fill construction of I-5 and an additional 43 acres of highly disturbed land currently used for disposal of materials from the demolition of roads and other facilities. The site consists of a 27-acre pit, about 20 to 30 feet deep, surrounded by flat lands with highly compacted soils. Conversion of the pit for use as a groundwater basin would initially require no construction activity except to connect the pit to existing canals. Prior to this work, the site would be surveyed by a permitted biologist and, if sensitive wildlife were found within a proposed alignment, the alignment would be modified to avoid impacts.
