NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The purpose of this project is to retrofit and automate the existing system during the low pumping period of April 15-May 15, 2003. While some of the existing manually operated portions of the trash rack would be retained, the manual rake would be replaced with an automated one, such as a Bosker rake, which would be run on the existing tracks. Retrofitting of the existing site would be necessary to accommodate the new rake, e.g. the existing angle of the trash racks would have to be adjusted.
