Northstar-at-Tahoe Sawmill Flat Spring Collection System Maintenance
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Sawmill Flat collection system proposed to rehabilitate the existing spring collection system. The existing collection system was developed in 1970 for municipal water purposes and consists of a subsurface drainage system. Since the development of the system, flows have decreased due to roots that have clogged the system. The proposed maintenance and rehabilitation of the Sawmill Flat collection system will require the replacement or reconstruction of sub-surface pipeline segments that are in disrepair, such that the spring collection flow resumes the original 1970 spring flows, with negligible or no capacity expansion.
