NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Gualala Community Services District (GCSD; District) operates a septic tank effluent pump (STEP) station collection system and a tertiary wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) which serves the Gualala business district and nearby residences. The District has identified deficiencies in the Wastewater Facility that have the potential to result in violations to water quality standards and public health and safety. Therefore, the District proposes to construct upgrades to the existing Wastewater Facility (Proposed Project). Proposed Project upgrades are based on recommendations within the State Water Resources Control Board Grant Funded Wastewater Planning Project Engineering Report (2021). All components of the Proposed Project would be constructed within the property boundaries and easements of the existing WWTPs, associated collection system lift stations, and STEP collection systems. The Proposed Project would include updates to the existing wastewater treatment infrastructure.
