The State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) is the lead agency. The SWRCB's Safe Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (SDWSRF) Program is providing funds for the project. The Floriston Water System proposes to evaluate a filtration system that compiles with the State's regulations for its potable natural spring source, and to drill a test well to test the potential viability of supplying groundwater to the water system. In addition, the water system will prepare plans, specifications and cost estimate documents for the selected construction project.
The project will not have a significant effect on the environment. The project has been determined to meet the requirements of the Categorical Exemption selected above, and does not include any of the Exceptions pursuant to California Code of Regulations, Title 14, Division 6, Chapter 3, Article 19, Section 15300.2.
