Present Land Use
General Agriculture 40-Acre
Document Description
The intent of this document is to notify the public that Turlock Irrigation District (TID) has prepared an environmental evaluation document (Initial Study) in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and intends to adopt a Negative Declaration (ND) based on the finding that there is no substantial evidence that the proposed action will have a significant effect on the environment. The reasons supporting this finding are documented in the Initial Study. The proposed project site is located two miles south of the City of Oakdale on Patterson Rd. in Stanislaus County. Currently, the existing tower signal is compromised by deciduous trees between two remote TID facilities. To prevent eventual signal loss, the proposed project involves replacing the existing 80-foot lattice pole with a 130-foot monopole. After the monopole is installed, additional antennas may be added as necessary to provide communication links between Oakdale Switchyard and other facilities.
