United States Gypsum Company Expansion//Modernization Project Revised Mitigation Measures
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
ocotillo/Nomirage Community Area Plan
The 2008 Final EIR/EIS concluded that increased pumping from USG wells could degrade water quality in individual wells. Two Mitigation Measures were presented to reduce the level of significance of identified impacts on groundwater levels and groundwater quality. On Dec. 16, 2013, the Court of Appeal reversed a prior Superior Court order, holding that there was insufficient evidence to support the County's conclusion that adopted Mitigated Measures for the project would be viable or effective in reducing the Project's potential impacts on individual groundwater wells to a level of insignificance. Proposed Revised Mitigation Measures have been developed and are being considered by the County through preparation of a SEIR to address the inadequacies identified by the Court of Appeal and to comply with CEQA.
