Bay Point and Saranap Full Trash Capture Installation
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The project will install subsurface trash capture devices certified by the State Water Resources Control Board at the two locations identified above. The County is a permittee of the Regional Water Quality Control Board’s Municipal Regional Stormwater Permit (MRP 3.0), which mandates attainment of a 100 percent trash load reduction to receiving waters by 2025. This project would help the County meet this mandate by treating areas with moderate or greater trash load rates within approximately 115 acres of Bay Point and 150 acres of Saranap, and preventing trash from reaching Suisun Bay, local tributaries, and Las Trampas Creek. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2024 and take approximately 50 working days to complete. Ground disturbance and excavation will occur to a maximum depth of approximately 14 feet. Applicable best management practices (BMPs) such as storm drain inlet protection will be implemented. No tree removal is anticipated but vegetation removal may be necessary. Traffic controls will be needed for the duration of construction at both locations. Utility relocations and real property transactions may be necessary.
