NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Inspect and rehabilitate two existing wells at Fort Ross State Historic Park to reduce iron bacteria formations on well screens and increase well production. Wells will be inspected by camera to determine condition of well and casing. If no significant damage is detected, well cleaning agents will be injected and mechanized brushing, surging, and pumping will be initiated to loosen encrustations. All additives and debris will then be pumped from the wells, contained, and removed from the site. Pumping will continue until well water meets the Sonoma County Health Department potability standards. Areas immediately adjacent to the wells and the wells themselves will be completely surrounded with berms or other containment methods to prevent spillage of materials outside well sites. Additionally, materials to neutralize any potential spill will be available on-site throughout duration of the project. Materials will be disposed of in a manner consistent with applicable State, federal, and local hazardous material disposal requirements.
