Document Description
The San Benito County Water District, City of Hollister, Sunnyslope County Water District, and San Benito County, propose to implement the West Hills Water Treatment Plant project (proposed project). The primary purpose of the proposed project is to provide high quality water supply to the western area of the Hollister Urban Area, an area which currently receives groundwater. As lead agency, SBCWD intends to prepare an EIR in accordance with CEQA to evaluate the project's potential environmental impacts. The project site is located in an unincorporated area of San Benito County just outside of the southwestern boundary of the City of Hollister in the hills north of Union Road. The project site consists of two vacant parcels totaling approximately 33 acres that are jointly owned by the City of Hollister and Sunnyslope County Water District. The main components of the proposed project include construction and operation of the West Hills water treatment plant, a raw water pump station, and raw and treated water transmission pipelines. The proposed plant would be comprised of treatment facilities, solids handling facilities (including drying beds0, treated water storage tanks, an administration and operations building and associated facilities. Raw water would be supplied to the water treatment plant from the Hollister Conduit, which transfers water from the San Luis and San Justo Reservoirs. New pipelines would be constructed along Richardson Road, Riverside Road, and Nash Road.
