Document Description
The City of Manteca is seeking environmental approval for a 2.5 to 3-megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) array at the existing City of Manteca WQCF. This program was not included in the original WQCF Master Plan Update, and were therefore not analyzed within the associated WQCF Masters Plans EIR (EDAW, 2007). The solar PV array would be located to the south of the existing City of Manteca WQCF and would encompass approximately 11.9 acres. There will also be some electrical conduits either at or below grade. A berm would be located along the southern boundary of the solar PV array. Additionally, a temporary construction laydown area and storage area (of approximately 3.9 acres) would be on the eastern side of the City of Manteca WQCF and to the north of the solar PV array. Dirt access roads to and from existing roadways would also be allowed.
