NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
A 10,000 gal concrete fire suppression tank will be constructed on an existing developed site located at 39582 Balch Park Road, Springville, CA, 93265 (Bear Creek Forest Fire Station). This tank will be for fire emergency and used as a water source. Currently there are no feasible water sources in the area. Water is in short supply due to the extended drought. The tank will be initially filled from water tenders (water truck). An evaporation valve will be installed, and minor fills due to evaporation will come from the station well. However, large replenishment will come from water tenders. A 20'x20' pad shall be graded and leveled by hand using fire crews. A concrete tank and fittings will be constructed in place. Minimal site disturbance will occur in trenching for the footing of the tank. One cement truck for approx. 3-4 separate days will be used to supply the needed concrete. Annual grasses occupy the current location.
