Phelan Pinon Hills Community Services District Wells No. 15 and 16 Development Project
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
The PPHCSD seeks to install two new wells as part of their Capital Improvement Projects, which would both aid the District in meeting current and future demand, and minimize Chromium-6 concentrations in the District’s water supply. These wells would be installed within the Phelan Community within the County of San Bernardino, within the District’s service area. Well 15 is proposed to be located on a 5-acre portion of a 40-acre parcel (Assessor’s Parcel Number [APN] 3101-31-01) north of the District, at the northwest corner of the intersection of Crudup Road and Azalea Road, on Azalea Road and Victor Street. The project will also include 5,900 lineal feet (LF) of 12” water pipeline, which will connect to the District’s existing water distribution system, which feeds reservoirs 2-1 and 2-2 on Sheep Creek Road. The pipeline is anticipated to be 12” diameter in size. The project will include a retention basin, a 10’ x 10’ chlorination structure, switch gear, and proposed transformer that will connect to an existing power pole opposite the project site along Azalea Road.
The District is also planning to install a second well, Well No. 16, to connect to the District’s existing water distribution system. Well No. 16 is proposed to be installed on a 40-acre site the District currently owns along Sheep Creek Road, just north of the intersection of Sheep Creek Road and Cayucos Drive along the western side of the street (APN 3098-071-05). The site would include the following features: a 6” in diameter pipeline connecting to the District’s distribution system in Sheep Creek Road; a 4” drain line to the retention basin; a 10’ x 10’ chlorination building adjacent to the proposed well; and, a 4” conduit, switch gear, and transformer to connect to the existing powerline pole. Construction is anticipated to being in spring of 2022, with the wells becoming operational by the end of 2022.
