Replace Restrooms and Water System
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project will replace the existing water lines serving the day use area and the Creek Campground, replace five combination buildings, and construct a new comfort station at the Donner Memorial Park. The existing water lines and buildings are very old and in constant need of repair due to their deteriorated condition. The building and water systems are worn out and need to be replaced to meet current standards and the needs of the campground and visitors. The existing portable toilets in the China Cove area do not meet the needs of park users, are a difficult maintenance problem and health hazard, as well as unattractive in the natural setting of this cove. This project will provide the public with clean, safe, and more visually appropriate facilities in this area for use.
