Sierra Conservation Center (SCC) Filtration Project

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project will design and construct additional filtration capacity for the existing water supply treatment facility at SCC. The project will construct two structures at the existing water plant; a steel tank and a steel filtration unit. New piping will be installed to connect the new components and provide electric power, which will require some trenching in the treatment facility yard. The additional filtration-sedimentation equipment will be used to supplement the existing filtration equipment that is overloaded during high turbidity events. Currently, the institution is forced to perform excessive backwashing during these events to the point that the volume of wastewater from the backwashing limits the portable water that can be supplied.
