Starlite Pines Mutual Water Company Storage Capacity Improvements Project
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Rural residential, SPMWC existing facilities
Starlite Pines Mutual Water Company would construct a new 236,000-gallon welded steel water storage tank and a block building pump station at Well Site 1. Construction of the tank and pump station would require the removal of approximately 44 trees ranging in size from 8 to 24 inches in diameter. Three vertically mounted pumps and a motor control center would be built inside the pump station and an emergency power generator would be located outside, adjacent to the building under the roof extension. At both well sites 1 and 2, 40-foot tall radio tower antennas would be constructed to facilitate communication between the two pump stations. The foundations for the radio towers will be concrete and installed to a depth of 4 feet and measure 4 feet wide by 4 feet long. Construction of the radio tower antenna at Well Site 2 would occur in a previously disturbed area, and no tree removal will be required at Well Site 2. The project also includes replacing five 4-inch dry barrel fire hydrants with five full-size 6-inch hydrants located on Starlite Pines Road and Constellation Drive to provide better flow for fire suppression. Once the new tank and pump station are fully operational, the existing in-ground reservoir and pump station at Well Site 1 will be demolished; and the removed material will be brought to an approved landfill. Soil and rock excavated to accommodate the new tank and pump station will be used to backfill the area occupied by the existing in-ground reservoir once it is removed.
