NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
On November 13, 2013 the Board autorized the design for the Ophir Road Pipeline Extension project, which would provide drinking water to residents living in the Ophir Gardens neighborhood located near the intersection of Ophir Road and Wise Road. The community's single source of domestic water is a well that has recently diminished to a production rate of 1 gpm. The California Department of Public Health considers this a water emergency. The project would include construction of a 2200-ft of 12-inch pipeline within the Ophir Road right of way. There would be minimal ground disturbance and construction will be within a 20-foot corridor with staging areas.
