Document Description
As Lead Agency, the Ventura County Watershed Protection District (District) prepared an environmental impact report for the J Street Drain Project (referred to herein as the "approved project"). The District proposed to increase the flow capacity of the existing J Street Drain to accommodate runoff from a 100-year storm event, thereby reducing potential flooding of residential and commercial areas in the cities of Oxnard and Port Hueneme. The Ventura County Board of Supervisors certified the J Street Drain EIR and approved the J Street Drain Project on March 27, 2012. The EIR Addendum was prepared to determine whether the proposed modified project would result in new or substantially more severe significant environmental impacts compared with the impacts disclosed in the certified EIR. The proposed modified project would result in minor changes to the approved project's design for Reaches 2, 3 and 4. Instead of an open channel, the proposed modified project would feature buried box culverts that would allow for landscaping on top. Similar to the approved project, the channel would remain open in Reach 1 from the south side of Hueneme Road south to Ormond Beach Lagoon to avoid impacts to endangered species in the lagoon.
