Document Description
The OCWD approved an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration for the North Basin Groundwater Protection Project (NBGPP) in 2005, which was designed to contain groundwater contamination and stop its continued lateral and vertical migration. Recent water quality testing site investigations, preliminary engineering, and request from the City of Fullerton have caused OCWD to propose four modifications to the approved NBGPP. The project modifications include: (1) a new extraction well within Woodcrest Park and an appurtenant pipeline extending west from Highland Avenue along Orangethorpe Avenue; (2) rerouting of previously approved pipelines planned within South Lemon Street and East Valencia Drive to North Highland Avenue, East Truslow Avenue, and North Harbor Boulevard, as requested by the City of Fullerton; (3) revisions to the order of the treatment process that will affect the treatment plant design (unchanged plant located southeast of the Orangethorpe Avenue and State College Boulevard intersection); and (4) replacing the previously approved groundwater recharge facilities with an injection wellfield containing 12 injection wells located on the west side of State College Blvd. and south of Carbon Creek, and an appurtenant pipeline connecting the treatment plant site and the injection wellfield.
