Flow Equalization and Resource Recovery Facility Levee Improvements and Recycled Water Facility Project
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR

Flow Equalization and Resource Recovery Facility for a sanitary sewer district/industrial
The West Bay Sanitary District (WBSD), is the lead agency responsible for the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) for the Flow Equalization and Resource Recovery Facility Levee Improvements and Recycled Water Facility Project.
The WBSD proposes to construct levee improvements and a new recycled water facility at its Flow Equalization and Resource Recovery Facility. The project provides Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) 100-year and anticipated sea-level rise flood protection and allows the District to provide recycled water to customers.
The project site is located at 1700 Marsh Road (Assessor's Parcel Number 055-400-010) in the northern part of Menlo Park, adjacent to San Francisco Bay and northwest of Bedwell Bayfront Park. Access to the site is provided via Highway 101 and Marsh Road. San Francisco Bay and Don Edwards National Wildlife Refuge surround the site to the north, and Flood Slough and salt evaporation ponds to the west, and Bedwell Bayfront Park abuts the site's southern and eastern boundaries.
The project site is approximately 20 acres in size. The FERRF currently provides temporary storage for sanitary sewer flows during peak flow events or conveyance system maintenance in three open storage basins. The basins are lined and surrounded by earthen levees and a perimeter access road. Because of the bayside location, the site contains northern coastal salt marsh, tidal slough, and California annual grassland habitats. The site also contains the remnants of a decommissioned wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) which operated from 1952-1980 and a small nursery for growing wetland and vegetation.
