Existing water supply treatment facility sites. The existing zoning is General Agriculture (AG-160) and General Plan designation is General Agriculture (A/G) for both the Tesla Portal site and the Thomas Shaft site.

Document Description
The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) proposes the San Joaquin Regional Water Quality Improvement Project to improve water disinfection capabilities atr the SFPUS's Tesla Portal site and the Thomas Shaft site, both within unincorporated San Hoaquin County. At the Tesla portal site, the Tesla Treatment Facility is proposed, which entails replacement of the existing Tesla Portal Hypochlorite Station with a new Chemical Process Building and Office/Control Building, and the construction of a UV facility, which would disinfect water using a series of UV light arrays. At the Thomas Shaft site, the Lawrence Livermore Water Quality Improvements would upgrade the existing water treatment facility with a UV system. Both facilities are proposed to meet disinfection requirements of the Surface Water Treatment Rule and the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule. Construction is anticipated to start in January 2009 and lat ~24 months. The EIR found that implementation of the project would not result in project-specific significant environmental effects that could not be mitigated to a less than significant level with implementation of mitigation measures, with the exception of the project's contribution to impacts associated with the WSIP. Because the project is part of the WSIP, the project would contribute to the following significant and unavoidable impacts: effects on fishery resources in Crystal Springs Reservoir in San Mateo County; indirect growth-inducement impacts in the SFPUC service area; and effects on stream flow in Alameda Creek between the diversion dam and the confluence with Calaveras Creek.
