The proposed project would involve investigative soil borings by Mitsubishi Cement Corporation (MCC; Applicant) in the City of San Diego, California. Work to specifically complete the proposed project would involve drilling of four (4) bore holes to a depth of six and one half (6.5) feet (ft) deep, one (1) bore hole to a depth of 90 ft., collect soil and groundwater samples for environmental and geotechnical testing, backfill of the borings with grout, and restoration of asphalt surface. Construction of the proposed project is anticipated to occur in Spring 2021 and would take approximately three (3) days 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 Applicant would be responsible for complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding construction demolition debris, hazards and hazardous materials, and stormwater.
The proposed project would also include a Right of Entry License Agreement (ROELA) to the Applicant (Licensee) to enter certain properties located in the City of San Diego, California. The areas proposed for use under this ROELA would be used by the Licensee and the Applicant’s authorized agent(s) and contractors(s) for the purpose of drilling four shallow bore holes and one deep bore hole to gather additional information and conduct research regarding the soil character on or near the project site in order to evaluate potential separate and/or additional project costs, which will enable MCC to further analyze project components and their corresponding costs, as well as ingress and egress in support of those activities. No new construction or increase in size of the area is proposed or authorized as part of the ROELA.
It is anticipated that the ROELA would have a total term of approximately one year, or upon completion of the work, whichever occurs earlier. The ROELA may be terminated by the District as a matter of right and without cause at any time upon providing twenty-four (24) hours’ notice in writing to the Licensee of such termination.
