Bautista Conservation. Camp: Septic System Improvement
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The project is necessary to meet the health and safety code requirements for a state correctional facility and to meet current water treatment standards by upgrading the existing septic system at the Bautista Conservation Camp. The current septic tanks are under-capacity for the camp needs and the two existing leachfields are clogged with solids and hydrologically overloaded due to lack of detention time in the septic tanks. This project involves excavating and backfilling new trenches, and installing the following new components: (1) a new 20,000 gallon septic tank adjacent to existing tanks, (2) two new 3,000-gallon kitchen grease interceptors to replace a 1,000-gallon interceptor, and a new lint trap for two commercial laundry machines, (3) a new distribution box, manholes and pipeline to the leach fields, and; (4) five new leach fields to supplement two existing fields.
