Mill Creek Water Diversion Structure Emergency Repair, Sonoma Developmental Center
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The proposed project consists of the emergency repair and restoration of service provided by the existing water diversion structure on Mill Creek to the Sonoma Development Center. DDS has determined the emergency repairs are immediately necessary because, absent the repairs, the Center will have an insufficient fire and domestic water supply to maintain operation of the facility. Surface water annually diverted from Mill and Ashby Creeks to the Fern Lake storage reservoir represent the main water supply source for the Center. The diversion structures on Mill Creek and Asbury Creek were badly damaged by the 2006 winter storms.
