Document Description
The District acquired approximately 320 acres of property (APNs 198-100-008, 198-100-007, 198-100-006, and 198-110-002) at the southwest corner of Avenue 212 and Road 188. The property currently sits outside of the District’s boundaries, and is being annexed into the District as part of this Project. The Project property is located in southwest Tulare County, southwest of the City of Lindsay near the CDP of Plainview. These lands historically have been farmed and are currently fallowed. There is one rural residence on the site, located at the corner of Road 188 and Avenue 208. The residence will not be removed as part of this Project. The existing site has several wells on site that were previously used to irrigate the 320-acres of farmland at the Project site. The total area of potential effect (APE) analyzed is approximately 336 acres. The Project involves several phases of construction of groundwater recharge basin facilities. The first phase will involve 80 acres of basins that will be constructed with habitat for migrating birds, funded by the Wildlife Conservation Board. This habitat will consist of adding islands to the basins and sloping the floors to create varying water levels to benefit a wide diversity of shorebirds and other waterbirds. The first phase of basins will be designed around the residence that is located on that parcel. Construction of other basins on the remaining 240 acres will occur during subsequent phases. For the purposes of CEQA this document is analyzing the impacts of 320 acres of recharge basins to be annexed, and two proposed pipeline options.
