Document Description
The San Bernardino Valley Water Conservation District is charged with operating and maintaining facilities for groundwater recharge. In general, the facilities consist of 3,650 acres of spreading and recharge area. Maintenance of these facilities occurs year-round or as needed to clear storm debris that may block intake structures or become built up on the basin floor, preventing recharge. The Project is the long-term maintenance of the District's facilities and through the District has routinely operated these facilities since the 1930s, the District desires to obtain formal permits from the various regulatory agencies which now have jurisdiction over the facilities. As part of obtaining these permits, the agencies require the District to assess the potential environmental impacts of the operations and maintenance. The environmental impacts of operations and maintenance of the District's Santa Ana facilities were analyzed in the previous environmental documents. The operations and maintenance of the Mill Creek facilities were not included in those CEQA analysis. Therefore, the focus of this Initial Study will be the environmental impacts of the operations and maintenance of the Mill Creek facilities (herein referred to as the Project), within the District's property that comprises the Mill Creek facilities (herein referred to as the Project Area).
