Document Description
The East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD), as the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) lead agency, prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIR) for the Central Reservoir Replacement Project (Project). The Draft EIR was developed to provide the public and responsible and trustee agencies reviewing the Project with an analysis of the potential effects on the local and regional environment associated with construction and operation of the Project. Central Reservoir is a 154-million-gallon (MG) open-cut reservoir that was constructed in 1910. The Project includes removal of vegetation and demolition of the existing reservoir, roof, lining, and material storage building, followed by removal of a portion of the reservoir’s main embankment and construction of a reinforced tank foundation system, three 17-MG concrete tanks, a new rate control station, a valve structure, service road and site paving, a bioretention area, and security fencing all within the existing reservoir property. The Project site design, with community input, incorporates existing landscaping and a mix of earthen berms, trees, and shrubs to screen the tanks and emphasize the natural setting at the perimeter of the site while balancing earthwork. The Project may also include an access driveway to connect the Redwood Day School parking area to Ardley Avenue.
