Document Description
This project is located at CAL FIRE San Bernardino Unit’s (BDU) Yucca Valley Fire Station (Yucca Valley Station), a CAL FIRE facility located in the community of Yucca Valley at 7105 Airway Avenue, Yucca Valley, CA 92284. The property is primarily surrounded by vacant lots, commercial use, and residential areas. The project site is located adjacent to existing buildings and infrastructure and consists of approximately 774 square feet of disturbed land, consisting of an existing concrete pad and adjacent disturbed dirt area, primarily serving as landscaping. The purpose of the project is to construct a new generator storage building with additional space to accommodate a new compressor and fill station for Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) units. In addition, a 1,000-gallon fuel tank and associated pad will be constructed adjacent to the building, for purposes of fueling the generator. Project activities will consist of all necessary construction for the installation of the storage building and fuel tank pad, including any associated infrastructure and utilities. The building will total approximately 624 square feet and the fuel tank pad will total approximately 150 square feet, for a total of approximately 774 feet. Project impacts will be limited to existing disturbed dirt and hardscaped areas. Trenches for utilities will be approximately 2’ in depth and 1’ in width. Project implementation is expected to begin as soon as November 2021 and last approximately 10 weeks. Equipment necessary for project implementation includes a skid steer and a back hoe. Other various utility and passenger vehicles needed for the delivery of materials and personnel will also be used. Heavy equipment will be staged onsite, within and/or adjacent to the project site in existing improved areas. Vehicles used for the delivery of materials and personnel will commute to the site as necessary. No offsite improvements are necessary for project implementation.
