Document Description
The District proposes to construct a new water storage reservoir tank and a booster pump station to serve the Saddle Crest Homes development. The above-ground 1.5 million-gallon (MG) steel water tank, pump station, related infrastructure will allow the District to pump water from their existing system to feed the new reservoir at a higher elevation and serve the new housing development with a gravity system to meet fire flow and domestic water service requirements. (Site preparation will be required to sub-grade and compact the soils of the Project site, and the booster pump station will be located approximately 50-feet west of the steel water tank.) See NOD for Full Details.

Other Location Info
The Saddle Crest Homes development includes construction of 65-single-family homes on approximately 113. 7 acres located within the foothills of the Santa Ana Mountains in the southeast Orange County north of the junction of Live Oak Canyon Road with El Toro Road and east of Santiago Canyon Road. Cleveland National Forest is adjacent and north of the Saddle Crest Homes development site, Santiago Canyon Estates is located to the east; it is bounded on the south by Santiago Canyon Road and the City of Lake Forest with Limestone-Whiting Wilderness Park; and an existing residential estate is generally located along the western boundary. To minimize environmental impacts to the Project area, the homes will be clustered within the southwestern portion of the site while approximately one-third of the site will be preserved as open space. The Project reservoir site and booster pump station are located on a 0:52-acre site near the northern border of the construction area in Lot-68, within the Saddle Crest Homes development, north of the street that will be called Auburn Hills.
