Document Title
Wheatland Regional Sewer Pipeline Project
Document Type
NOP - Notice of Preparation of a Draft EIR
Present Land Use
The project site consists of an approximately eight-mile-long sewer pipeline alignment extending from an existing pump station near the City of Wheatland’s existing wastewater treatment plant north to a point of connection with Olivehurst Public Utility District’s wastewater system. The proposed pipeline alignment generally extends north/northeast along roadways within the City of Wheatland, and then along roadways and farmland in unincorporated Yuba County.
Document Description
The first portion of the proposed pipeline alignment would begin at the existing pump station on Malone Avenue and head due east within the City limits. Within this portion, the pipeline would generally extend through a largely vacant parcel, then cross under State Route (SR) 65 and the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) mainline track to proceed east along Sixth Street to Spenceville Road. The pipeline would then proceed within Spenceville Road until just past its intersection with Jasper Lane. Along Sixth Street, existing uses generally include single-family and multi-family residences along the north and south sides of the street. Along Spenceville Road, residences and open agricultural fields are generally located to the north and south of the roadway. For example, the Wheatland Ranch neighborhood is located on the northerly side of the road within the eastern City limits. Spenceville Road also bisects South Grasshopper Slough, prior to reaching Jasper Lane. The next portion of the pipeline alignment is within unincorporated Yuba County and would proceed northerly along Jasper Lane for approximately 2.3 miles. Private farmland property is generally located along both sides of Jasper Lane. The road also crosses over Dry Creek Bridge, approximately 0.75-mile north of Spenceville Road. From the northernmost end of Jasper Lane, the pipeline would head due west to connect with Pump Station 3, which would generally be located at the convergence of SR 65, UPRR, and the U.S. Government railroad. Active agricultural lands comprise the majority of this portion of the alignment. Rural residences are also interspersed throughout the area.
