The Bath Well treatment plant is intended to replace the existing aged treatment plant, and will be -located on the same parcel as the existing treatment plant. The treatment plant is located approximately 30 feet east of an existing one-and-a-half million-gallon reservoir on a site that has been previously, and continuously disturbed. The site has no potential for habitat for rare or endangered species. The proposed project will result in short-term noise disruption to the area for the construction of the treatment plant; however, the impacts will be short-term and limited. Further, there are no sensitive receptors on, or near, the project site. The proposed treatment plant is replacing an existing treatment plant therefore no significant new infrastructure will be required to connect the Bath Well treatment plant to the existing water system. Therefore, . it can be seen with certainty that the project will not result in any direct or indirect environmental impacts pursuant to the General Rule of CEQA as outlined in Section 15061 (b )(3).
