Document Description
Under Alternative 2, the project WWTF improvements would be constructed at the RMT II site instead of the Approved Samoa WWTF site. The RMT II site is located on an approximately 0.5-acre portion of APN 401-112-021 east of Vance Avenue and adjacent to the ocean outfall connection at Manhole 5. The Alternative 2 wastewater treatment improvements would be the same as described in Section 3.5.3, except that Alternative 2 would require construction of a headworks and primary treatment system for screening and grit removal (the proposed project would utilize the Approved Samoa WWTF headworks and primary treatment system). The long-Term Phase, as described in EIR Chapter 3.0 Project Description would be the same under Alternative 2. Alternative 2 would satisfy all project objectives except the objective of consolidating wastewater collection and treatment services within the PCSD service area or minimizing project costs by improving the Approved Samoa WWTF. The location and type of conveyance and disposal improvements would remain as described in EIR Chapter 3 Project Description. However, the Alternative 2 site is currently zoned Industrial/Coastal-Dependent which does not allow public facilities. Therefore, this alternative would require a Local Coastal Program (LCP) amendment to change the land use and zone from Industrial/Coastal-Dependent, a priority use in the Coastal Zone, to one that will allow the construction of a wastewater treatment plant. There is an adequate amount of previously disturbed (i.e., non-ESHA) land available for purchase or lease at the RMT II site. It is currently unknown if a Section 401 Water Quality Certification from North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board would be required. Alternative 2 would require the same permits as the proposed project.
