Document Description
The project would develop a spring water bottling facility and ancillary uses. The water bottling facility would include an approximately 198,500-sf bottling plant facility with four bottling lines and an approximately 40,000 sf storage warehouse. Proposed ancillary uses include rooftop solar array, a fire suppression building, a stormwater detention basin, a leach mound, a fire access road, and a parking and truck staging area. To provide adequate access from US 395 to the bottling facility, the project would remove the site's existing access road (i.e., Cabin Bar Ranch Road) and construct a new permanent access road approximately 2,500 feet to the south. The bottling facility would utilize spring water from three existing production wells to supply the bottling operations. The project would also use a fourth existing well to provide domestic potable water to the water bottling facility's employees. The project will permanently remove 2.88 acres of Swainson's hawk, western yellow-billed cuckoo, southwestern willow Flycatcher, and least Bell's vireo habitat. The project is expected to result in incidental take of Swainson's Hawk, which is designated as a threatened species and yellow-billed cuckoo, southwestern willow flycatcher, and least Bell's vireo, which are designated as endangered under CESA. The ITP referenced above as issued by CDFW authorizes incidental take of species listed under CESA that may occur as a result of project implementation. This ITP Minor Amendment No. 2 requires the Permittee to place an onsite area of 2.58 acres of red willow thicket habitat and 0.3 acres of man-made pond under a conservation easement, as well as provide CDFW with $27,511.00 to be used towards the enhancement, restoration and management of riparian habitat on the permanently protected and CDFW-owned and managed Cartago Springs Cartago Wildlife Area.
