NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
CWS-Tulco will drill Well 200-02, a 200-gallon per minute, 700-foot deep well, to replace Well 200-01, a 309-foot well. (Well 200-01 is estimated to have had a capacity between 300 and 588 gallons per minute, based on past wells maintained by the previous water system owner on and off the site, including possible wells that Well 200-01 many have replaced.) An approximately 16-ft^2-pad and eight-foot tall shelter will be installed to house the new well. A 300-gallon sodium hypochlorile storage tank will be installed under an approximately 16-ft^2 awning surrounded by a chain link fence. An estimated 25-foot long sodium hypochlorite line, less than an inch diameter, will run from the storage tank to the injection point. Approximately 60-feet of six-inch diameter piping will be installed to connect the replacement well to the existing distribution system. An estimated 18-ft^2, seven-foot tall panel board, a 7.75-ft^2, seven-foot tall electrical cabinet, and associated electrical lines will also be installed on site. Well-200-01 will be destroyed. The Project will provide for the operation of the system .
