Document Description
The City of Live Oak P Street Lift Station Rehabilitation Project (Project) will update and modify the City's existing P Street Lift Station, while keeping the existing lift station operational during construction activities. The existing lift station is over 45 years old, is nearing the end of its useful life, and provides limited operational storage for peak flow conditions. The lift station also does not have redundant capacity. Both installed pumps are currently required to pass winter flows on a regular basis. Design will incorporate a 3rd installed redundant pump. All Project updates and construction will occur within the existing P Street Lift Station site footprint. The Project includes construction or utilization of the following components: 1. Replace the existing wet well, approximately 21 feet deep; 2. Install new mechanical vaults with new flowmeter and covers (existing are impractical to re-use); 3. Furnish and install 3 new submersible Flygt pumps on a cradle and guide rail system; 4. Route existing flows to the new wet well; 5. Tie in the new pump discharge pipes at two locations on existing force mains, downstream of a single flowmeter; 6. Replace the existing electrical and instrumentation systems, including communications; 7. Replace the existing backup diesel generator with a new diesel generator; 8. Re-use the existing building with minor replacements and modifications; 9. Install a perimeter masonry wall with wrought iron gate access per City standards; 10. Pave the entire site within the wall, plus add lighting, four cameras, and door alarms for security; and 11. Provide landscape-ready areas between the sidewalk and new wall.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code
CEQA Guidelines State Class 1 and 2 -Sections 15301 and 15302
Reasons for Exemption
The proposed project would be statutorily exempt from environmental review under CEQA because the repair, replacement, and updating of the existing public P Street Lift Station wastewater facilities fits within both Class 1 and Class 2 exemptions and applies to the entirety of the Project description. The Project will consist of operation, repair, maintenance, and minor alterations of existing public wastewater facilities. Interior and exterior alterations include electrical conveyances, installation of wall and gate, and minor landscaping. There will be further repairs, rehabilitation and minor alterations to existing wells, vaults, pumps, pipes, generators, and existing buildings. If existing structures do need replacement, they will be located on the same site as the structure replaced and have the same purpose and negligible capacity increase. All Project components and construction will occur within the existing P Street Lift Station footprint.
