Mountain Gate Community Services District - Emergency Water Supply Improvement Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project includes improvements to the Mountain Gate Community Services District (MGCSD) water supply system that are required in order to replace aging infrastructure and equipment, and ensure a safe and reliable potable water supply for MGCSD customers. The Beaver Island Pump Station and the Lake Booster Pump Station are both located on U.S. Forest Service (USFS) land just above the high-water mark of Shasta Lake with limited access and space for permanent emergency generators. Therefore, project improvements consist of purchasing portable generators and installing manual transfer switches at both pump stations. Improvements at three of the District’s wells (Well 1A, Well 2, Well 3) include demolishing and replacing existing well and chlorination components; cleaning and air-developing the wells; installing new pitless adapters and protective bollards; and making various electrical upgrades including installing Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) equipment. In addition, the existing portable emergency generator utilized to power Wells 1A, 2, and 3 during power outages would be replaced with a new portable emergency generator at the Well 1A site.
