Effluent Pond Liner Replacement Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The proposed project will replace the pond liner at two effluent ponds at SCC, including the approx 3.7-acre Pond 7 and approx 3-acre pond 8. The existing liners are 21 years old and changes in the water levels as well as exposure to sunlight have led to their deterioration. The project includes pumping existing water into adjacent ponds, removing debris to prepare clean surfaces for the new liners, and installation of new liners using an anchor trench to secure the liners. Trenching will occur on the berms of the ponds. Existing fencing around the ponds will be removed and replaced in the same location. Gravel access roads will be repaired as necessary. A qualified biologist evaluated the site on March 7, 2017 and concluded that the project will not impact sensitive plants and/or wildlife species. This project is needed to ensure unimpeded operation of wastewater treatment at SCC.
