NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Contra Costa County Flood Control and Water Conservation District (District) plans to install subsurface trash capture devices certified by the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) on the three major storm drain lines in the community of Tara Hills. The goal is to achieve full trash capture (FTC) of the entire community to reduce and eliminate yearly loads of trash into Garrity Creek. This project will help the District meet the SWRCB's Municipal Regional Stormwater Permit mandate to generate zero yearly trash load to its creeks by 2022. Construction is anticipated to begin August 2022 and take approximately 45 working days to complete. Ground disturbance will occur to a maximum depth of approximately 16 feet. Applicable best management practices (BMPs) such as storm drain inlet protection will be implemented. No tree removal is anticipated but minor vegetation removal is anticipated. Traffic controls will be needed for the duration of construction at all locations. Temporary construction easements and other real property transactions may be necessary.
