Del Norte County Fairgrounds Easement for CVS Pharmacy No. 10478 Overflow Storm Drain
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The State (41 st DAA) proposes to grant an easement across Del Norte County Fairgrounds for CVS Pharmacy No. 10478 for installation of a new overflow storm drain pipeline. The easement runs from East Cooper Avenue to the northeast edge of the fairgrounds. Project construction includes excavation for a trench about 600 feet long, installation of a 24-inch storm drain, and restoring to pre-construction conditions. A headwall with graded outlet is proposed at the west end of the pipe. Two sleet pipe inlets will be connected side-by-side at the western end of the storm drain. The project includes environmental design features to minimize construction related impacts, such as compliance with requirements of the General Permit for Discharges of Storm Water Associated with Linear Underground Project, Best Management Practices for controlling fugitive dust, pre-construction nesting bird survey during the bird-nesting period (February 1 through August 15), procedures for inadvertent discoveries of human remains and cultural resources, and where subsurface soil testing confirms impacted soil, a Soil Management Plan that describes proper handling and disposal of impacted soil within or adjacent to the pipeline alignment. The project will correct a drainage problem by conveying overflow storm water across the fairgrounds property.
