Document Description
The County of San Luis Obispo as Lead Agency will prepare an Environmental Impact Report for a soil remediation grading project. The project is a request by Phillips 66 for a County Major Grading permit (PMTG2019-00065) for excavation of hydrocarbon-impacted soils at varying depths and widths within two affected areas along an existing oil pipeline alignment. The proposed work will be consistent with the project Corrective Action Plan (CAP), including backfilling the excavations and restoration of the site to current grade. The remediation project will result in the disturbance of approximately 20 acres, including approximately 87,046 cubic yards of cut and 96,023 cubic yards of fill material on the 899-acre parcel (APN 070-091-036). The project site is located at 9295 Yerba Buena Avenue, on a portion of the Santa Margarita Ranch located north of the community of Santa Margarita between US Highway 101 and El Camino Real. The proposed project is within the Agriculture land use category in the Salinas River Sub Area of the North County Planning Area. The proposed project may result in potentially significant environmental impacts relating and not limited to Cultural and Tribal Resources. This issue, together with the analysis of other issue areas as mandated by the CEQA Guidelines (Appendix G) including Alternatives, Cumulative Effects, and Growth Inducement, will be addressed in the Environmental Impact Report to be prepared for the project. There are no Cortese listings or GeoTracker sites located on-site, outside of the regulatory actions reported on the GeoTracker database associated with the proposed remediation project. At this time there is no tentative hearing date for the project. **** Full NOP and Summary Available online:
