San Miguel Pump Station & Reservoir Solar Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
The propsed Project would consist of solar panel arrays located on a vacant area within the 8.8 acre parcel owned by CCWD. Exhibit 1 displays the anticipated facility layout. The actual project footprint within the 8.8 acre parcel would be less than 1 acre. Access to the proposed Project would be through the existing paved access roads connected to Treat Blvd. Each solar array would consist of 8 modules each combined in 123 strings for a total of 984 photovoltaic modules (260 KW total capacity) that convert light into electricity by absorbing the energy of the sun and causing current to flow between two oppositely charged layers. Oncre grading is complete, the steel support structures for the photovoltaic power arrays would be installed on small concrete footings placed on grade, ~6 inches thick under each corner of the array. The photovoltaic arrays would then be installed on the support structures and the inverter would be installaed on the 12 inch thick concrete pad. The power conduits from the arrays to the inverter would be installed by trenching, to a depth of ~3 ft.
