Document Description
The IS has been recirculated due to a project design change made by the district to delete a retaining wall in the southwest corner of the Lord Ranch property to avoid potential impacts to the San Bernardino kangaroo rat. The proposed project as revised consists of the construction and operation of a 1-million gallon steel-welded reservoir, which measures 80 ft in diameter and 32 ft in height; a 3,500 sf pump station within a concrete masonry building; an arsenic water treatment facility; and two 30-in pipelines connecting the proposed reservoir and pump station to existing facilities. The proposed improvements would occur on approx. 1.73 acres at the District's approx. 13.72 acre existing Lord Ranch Facility plus an approx. 0.09 acre offsite property between Pepper Ave and the Lord Ranch property for access driveway. The facility is located on the east side of Pepper Ave, north of Baseline Rd, and south of SR 210. The site is currently occupied by Pumping Station 4-1, a 1.0 mg reservoir and 3 groundwater wells. The project also includes the construction of approx. 1.82 acres of asphalt driveways and paved areas from the Pepper Ave access and around the proposed pump station, reservoir, and treatment facility. The project site may also accept imported soil to the existing basin from Reservoir 8-3 located along Lytle Creek Rd, an activity addressed in a MND (#2011071079) approved in 2011 for the R8-3 and R8-4 Reservoirs. Construction and operation of a 1-million gallon (1.0 mg) steel-welded reservoir, which measures 80 feet in diameter and 32 feet in height, a 3,500 sf pump station within a concrete masonry building, and a water treatment facility. The pumping station would be sized with eight booster pumps with an approximate 2,980 gallons per minute (gpm) capacity and a station capacity of approximately 20.0 million gallons per day (mgd) (20,860 gpm with one pump on standby). The project also includes the construction of an asphalt driveway, paved areas around the pump station and reservoir, and a concrete block masonry retaining wall.
