TO ADOPT A MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION
PGWWTP Expansion and Energy Recovery Project - City of Roseville
Public Notice is hereby given that an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) (Environmental Report) is available for public review for the Pleasant Grove Wastewater Treatment Plant (PGWWTP) Expansion and Energy Recovery Project. The IS/MND has · been prepared in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA ) and Environmental Review Process Guidelines for State Revolving Fund Loan Applicants (SWRCB 2015, as updated in 2016) and is expanded beyond the typical content requirements of an initial study to include additional " CEQA-Plus" information.
Project Location: Pleasant Grove Wastewater Treatment Plant and Southern Expansion Parcel located at 5150 Westpark Drive, Roseville, CA.
Project Description: An IS/MND has been prepared by the City of Roseville (City) to evaluate the environmental effects of the PGWWTP Expansion and Energy Recovery Project. The existing PGWWTP was designed to treat 12 million gallons per day (mgd); however, due to higher than anticipated organic loading, the PGWWTP's effective treatment capacity is approximately 9.5 mgd. The Expansion Project would expand and increase treatment capacity of the existing PGWWTP to its original 12 mgd design capacity. The City is also considering the related but separate construction of new energy recovery facilities (Energy Recovery Project) that would beneficially utilize the digester gas produced by anaerobic digestion that is included in the Expansion Project. These projects combined represents the proposed project (Project). The Expansion Project can proceed without the Energy Recovery Project.
Document Review and Availability: In accordance with CEQA Guidelines Section 15105, the public review and comment period will extend for 38 days starting December 19, 2016 and ending January 25, 2017 at 5:00p.m. Although not required, this includes an additional eight days in recognition that the public review period extends over the holidays.
