Wastewater System Expansion Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
The project transects portions of the communities of Fall River Mills and McArthur. Land uses in these communities are primarily low- and medium-density residential, with commercial uses situated primarily adjacent to SR 299. Properties surrounding the study area include farmland and open space. The Fall River Mills Airport is located east of the WWTP on the west side of SR 299. Properties surrounding the Country Club Subdivision include a public golf course and open space.
Document Description
The project includes extending the FRVCSD wastewater collection system to various properties within the FRVCSD’s service area. Improvements include installing several thousand feet of sewer pipe and appurtenant structures. Existing structures would be connected to the new sewer collection system. Septic tanks would be abandoned in accordance with Shasta County requirements. Improvements would be made to existing Lift Station (LS) 1 (Bridge Street), LS 2 (Hospital), and LS 3 (River Street), including replacing existing pumps, motors, electrical components, controls, and piping. Back-up level controls and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) equipment would be installed at LS 1, LS 2, and LS 3. Improvements at the WWTP include constructing a new aeration pond inside one of the existing ponds, constructing a new building to house the aeration system equipment, installing a new self-cleaning mechanical screen in the existing concrete headworks, and replacing electronic sensors in the headworks to tie in to the SCADA system. An existing PG&E transformer adjacent to Reynolds Road would be replaced, and electrical conduit and conductors would be installed underground from the transformer to the WWTP. Additional details are included in Section 3.2 (Project Components/ Physical Improvements) of the IS/MND.
