Pilot Rock Fluoride Treatment Plant
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The Project is located at the CAL FIRE Pilot Rock Conservation Camp and is comprised of a fluoride treatment plant PRCC has historically enjoyed potable water from an onsite horizontal well, which was installed when the camp was originally built. Horizontal well production diminished over the years resulting in the installation of two vertical wells. To produce potable water, Well #2 must be blended with water from Well #3 and/or from the horizontal well to lower the fluoride below the MCL.
This project fits under portions of CE Class 3 CEQA pertaining to new construction of small structures. This project is motivated by the need to provide potable water to camp personnel and inmates through the installation of a small fluoride water treatment plant.
