Document Description
The initial Reservoir B Replament Project, approved by adoption of a CEQA MND in October 2018 (SCH #2018082044), included three main project elements: Reservoir B replacement; the Zone A pump stations, and the Zone A transmission main. On November 8, 2018, the Camp Fire devastated Paradise and surrounding areas. Conditions changed by the fire have altered the Reservoir B project needs; therefore, the project was amended as follows: 1) remove the Zone A pump station from the original project; 2) remove the Zone A transmission main from the original project; 3) downsize the recommended Reservoir B total volume to 3 million gallons; and 4) include two 1.5 million gallon, bolted steel tanks instead of two 2.3 million gallon steel tanks. Although the damage to PID's infrastructure from the fire was widespread, only the Reservoir B element of the project is addressed by this MND. Other project elements will be authorized under the appropriate Categorical Exemptions. Specifically, project recovery actions that would be authorized under a Categorical Exemption include: Almond Street main replacement; service lateral replacement; meter replacement; and main replacement.
