Linda County Water District Notice of Public Hearing
Regarding Adoption of a Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Linda County Water District Feather River Boulevard Pipeline Project
In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and the CEQA Guidelines, the Linda County Water District (LCWD), has prepared an Initial Study and proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the Feather River Boulevard Pipeline Project (the proposed Project). Based on the results of the Initial Study, LCWD determined that construction and operation of proposed Project would not have significant impacts on the environment. All potentially significant impacts identified in the Initial Study would be reduced to less than significant levels with implementation of appropriate mitigation measures.
The proposed Project is comprised of construction and operation of a new 10-inch diameter, ductile iron water pipeline proposed for placement in the roadway of Feather River Boulevard and use of a staging area on a vacant parcel (on Alicia Avenue north of Feather River Boulevard) during construction. The pipeline is proposed to extend 2,700 linear feet, placed within the Yuba County rights-of-way and connect to existing LCWD infrastructure at North Beale Road and Alicia Avenue. The proposed Project includes installation of (at minimum) four wet barrel fire hydrants. All work will conform with both LCWD and Yuba County standards.
Public Comment Period: July 7, 2021 to August 5, 2021.
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the LCWD Board of Directors intends to adopt a CEQA Mitigated Negative Declaration for the proposed Project on August 9, 2021 at its regular meeting of the LCWD Board of Directors, in accordance with the CEQA Guidelines.
