Document Description
The proposed project would construct a new 8,229 gsf/5,237 assignable sf regulated waste handling and storage facility for sorting, packaging, and accumulation of regulated waste generated by lab research and teaching, the arts, and maintenance on the main campus. The proposed site of the new facility is undeveloped, forested land on the east side of Heller Dr, a major campus road, on the UC Santa Cruz main campus, in the city of Santa Cruz. The facility would replace the Campus' existing temporary regulated waste facility at the base of campus and low-level radioactive storage facility in Thimann Laboratories in the central campus. Campus utilities would be extended to the site from Heller Dr and nearby developed areas via the pedestrian bridge.
