Geotechnical Testing for Two Overlapping PSUSD School Sites
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
PSUSD wishes to construct a temporary trench for the purposes of geotechnical testing to identify the possible location of an earthquake fault for a potential elementary school site. The PSUSD anticipates digging a fault investigation trench across the sites to a depth of 20-30 feet - the trench will be backfilled as soon as testing is completed. The PSUSD will benefit by knowing if the overlapping sites are suitable for school facilities.
