NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Construction of a Soil Vapor Extraction (SVE) and Catalytic Oxidizer Treatment System for Sacramento Environmental Management Department-mandated remediation of soil contamination resulting from leaking underground fuel storage tanks that have since been removed from the City's Corporation Yard. The project will include installation of vapor extraction wells on the site and construction of a vapor extraction and treatment system on the north side of the existing building in a fenced compound of approximately 260 s.f. The temporary project site will include chain link fencing with slats and a vapor conveyance pipe bracketed to the building. To minimize potential noise impacts to meet Galt Municipal Code requirements, the project will include a sound enclosure type blower and a blower silencer. The facility is expected to operate continuously for approximately one year; confirmation soil borings will be conducted and the wells decommissioned once acceptable remediation levels have been reached.
