- 578 Mountain Home Road Solar Project
- The proposed project consists of installation of solar panels in the uplands on the west side of an ephemeral creek which is tributary to Alambique Creek, in the Town of Woodside, San Mateo County, outside of wetland and riparian habitat. The installation will require horizontal directional drilling (HDD) boring approximately six to eight feet below the creek. Electricity will be transmitted via underground wires situated in a conduit placed through the bore. Pressure relief pits will be dug on either side of the bore tunnel to prevent blow out from pressure build up. The boring station and entry bore will be located 300 feet from the creek. The solar panel and exit bore will be at least 300 feet west of the creek and at least 35 feet west of the adjacent wetland habitat. The drill rig will be stationed in uplands at the eastern terminus of the drill bore which is near the developed portions of the property. The California Department of Fish and Game is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement Number 1600-2010-0186-R3 pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project Applicant, Mr. Phil Smith.
