Document Description
The proposed project would involve replacement and installation of new telecommunications equipment by AT&T, subtenant to Crown Castle (Tenant) in the City of National City, California. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would involve the following improvements on an existing telecommunications facility within an existing TUOP area, approved under Categorical Determination 2017-028: removal of three (3) panel antennas and eleven (11) existing antennas; relocation of four (4) existing antennas and five (5) Remote Radio Units (RRUs); and installation of three antennas, nine (9) RRUs, three rectifiers, one (1) stabilizer kit, pipe connections, twelve (12) crossover kits, pipe face members, and one base band unit. Construction of the proposed project is anticipated to occur in Fall 2020 and would take approximately two (2) weeks to complete. Due to its nature and limited scope, construction of the proposed project would generate a minor amount of vehicle trips and would require limited use of equipment. Therefore, significant impacts related to air quality, greenhouse gas emissions, and transportation and traffic are not anticipated to occur. Furthermore, the Tenant would be responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding construction demolition debris, hazards and hazardous materials, and stormwater.
