Cuesta La Honda Guild (Guild) filed a Petition for Change with the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board), Division of Water Rights, pursuant to the provisions of Water Code section 1700. The petition requests authorization to add La Honda Elementary School to the licensed place of use for License 10511 (Application 22782) in order to supply water to the school.
1. The Guild is not installing any new diversion facilities in the stream system. The school is not expanding it's facilities or use of water. The amount identified for use in the school site under the Guild's petition to change the place of use 1,000 gallons per day is within the licensed water use of the Guild. There is no expansion of use beyond that existing at the present time and there has been no expansion in use after the effective date of CEQA.
2. This project will not cause significant adverse impacts on any sensitive environment and will not result in significant cumulative impacts.
3. DFG staff did not identify any issues of concern and DFG did not submit an objection to the petition. The pipeline will not be installed in the streambed or riparian corridor of the stream. Diversions pursuant to the project cannot exceed the existing diversion limits in License 10511 and must occur within the authorized diversion period for License 10511.
4. There are no unresolved protests.
