Avy Altschul Pump Station Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Avy Altschul Pump Station Project will route approximately 98,000 gallons of wastewater per day to WBSD's Sharon Heights Water Reclamation Plant to meet existing recycled water demands and offset potable water currently used for irrigation. The pump station would be located at an existing WBSD easement on Las Lomitas Elementary School District property along Altschul Avenue. Approximately 150 linear feet of new pipelines would be constructed in Altschul Avenue to connect the pump station to the existing sewer and force main. Three new sanitary sewer manholes would also be constructed at points along the sewer pipeline. Construction is anticipated to begin in early summer 2023, and require 30 to 60 days to complete.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
Class 3 (New Construction or Conversion of Small Structures)
Reasons for Exemption
The Project would have a limited disturbance area and minimal aboveground components, and thus would be considered a small facility. An environmental checklist was prepared for the Project, which documents that the Project would not trigger any exceptions to a categorical exemption (i.e., would not impact scenic highways, is not located on a hazardous waste site, would not impact a historical resource, and would not have a significant impact due to its location, cumulative impacts, or other unusual circumstances). Thus, the Project is exempt under State CEQA Guidelines Sec. 15303.
