Notice of Public Hearing
San Andreas Sanitary District
A Notice of Public Hearing and Notice of Intent to Adopt the San Andreas Sanitary District’s (District) Revised Supplemental Initial Study/ Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the proposed Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade Project (Project) are hereby given. This Revised Supplemental IS/MND is associated with the District’s 2008 Wastewater Facilities Master Plan IS/MND (State Clearinghouse No. 2007122100).
In compliance with the California Environmental Quality Act, the District has prepared a revised supplemental IS/MND of the potential environmental impacts of the District’s proposed Project (submitted August 18, 2016 to the State Clearinghouse) for state agency review. The District’s proposed Project consists of replacing the headworks, upgrade the irrigation pump station; making improvements to Pond D; making improvements to Ponds B and C; aeration improvements; and replacing the aging sludge Digester at the existing District Wastewater Treatment Plant. The total length of Project construction is anticipated to take approximately 12-24 months, and is anticipated to take place in 2017 and 2018. If unforeseen circumstances push the proposed Project timeline back, construction will occur within five years of approval of the CEQA document.
The District is seeking public comments on the environmental document for the Project from local and state agencies, and interested organizations/persons. Written comments are preferred. The Revised Supplemental IS/MND discloses that, with the incorporation of mitigation, no significant environmental impacts are anticipated with the Project. Comments received will be duly considered by the District prior to certification of the document. The Revised Supplemental IS/MND for the Project is available for review at the San Andreas Sanitary District office located at 675 Gold Oak Road, San Andreas, CA 95249 and the Calaveras County Clerk-Recorder Office at 891 Mountain Ranch Road, San Andreas, CA 95249.
The District requests written comments be submitted as soon as possible to ensure each comment is addressed adequately. The public review period begins August 18, 2016 and ends September 16, 2016. Written comments should be sent directly to the San Andreas Sanitary District, P.O. Box 1630, San Andreas, CA 95249.
The District will conduct a public hearing on September 21, 2016 (6:00 PM) at the District Office, 675 Gold Oak Road, San Andreas, CA 95249 to consider comments on the Project’s environmental document, certify the Revised Supplemental IS/MND, and approve the District’s Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade Project.
