Document Description
Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) is the lead agency for the operation and review of a draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the proposed Foothill Phase II Water Treatment Plant and Pipeline Project (proposed project). In response to significant regional growth and in accordance with PCWA's Water Systems Infrastructure Plan (WSIP), PCWA plans to augment exising water supplies with a new treated water supply. Facilities that are addressed in this EIR include: * A new raw water intake pipeline (54 inch) pipeline at the south end of the Auburn Tunnel Pump Station No. 2 (ATPS) transfer basin and the water treatment plant (WTP); * A new water treatment plant (30 million gallons per day [mgd]), which will include an administration/maintenance building, pretreatment facilities for turbidity and organics reduction, filtration system, a chemical building, associated chemical feed systems, on-site storage facilities, and solids handling facilities; * A new treated water delivery pipeline (ranging from 60 to 42 inches) that will connect the new WTP to PCWA's existing transmission system near the intersection of Taylor Road and Rock Springs Road (referred to as Phase I). Phase II of the pipeline segment will convey treated water at a point near the intersection of Taylor and Callison Roads and continue west to a pipeline to be constructed by the City of Lincoln connecting the Sunset 10 mg water storage tanks and the new Lincoln Storage Tank farm; and * A new 12 inch treated water delivery pipeline that will connect to an 18 inch pipeline 350 feet east of Lozanos Road and continue southwest to the existing Newcastle water transmission system situated in Taylor Road.
