Right of Entry to Relocate Modular Office Building

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) is granting Right of Entry (ROE) to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) to relocate a modular office building to a different location at Folsom State Prison. As part of construction of the Folsom Dam Road Project, the ACOE placed a modular office building at Folsom State Prison, covered under the Folsom Dam Road Project environmental document. At its current location, the office modular is within the footprint of the new Folsom Dam Project to construct a new control structural structure, spillway and stilling basin for protecting the City of Sacramento from floods that, without the project, would inundate the City. When the Folsom Dam Road Project is completed, ACOE will vacate the modular, and Folsom State Prison will continue to use the modular for offices. Relocating the modular includes some excavation for footings, constructing a gravel parking area, and installing a security fence around the project site. Electrical utilities will be extended overhead from an existing source at Folsom Dam Road. Other utilities will be provided by a water tank and wastewater pump tank. The project will be constructed to avoid a wetland (creek drainage). Site surveys and a records search at the North Central Information Center confirmed that there are no cultural resources that would be impacted in the project area. The possible removal of one mature oak tree was considered and mitigated for under the Folsom Dam Road project.
