THE CITY OF <br />`.'=, "' CITY COUNCIL AGENDA REPORT <br />pLEASANTON. <br />11 <br />May 15, 2018 <br />Engineering <br />TITLE: ADOPT A RESOLUTION APPROVING ADDENDUM TO THE INITIAL <br />STUDY/MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION FOR THE CITY OF <br />PLEASANTON RECYCLED WATER PROJECT FOR KEN MERCER <br />SPORTS PARK BOOSTER STATION <br />SUMMARY <br />On September 16, 2014, City Council adopted the environmental review document, the <br />Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND), and the Mitigation Monitoring <br />Program which evaluated potential environmental impacts associated with the City's <br />proposed recycled water project (RWP). Subsequently, preparation of construction <br />documents were completed in December 2015. On January 20, 2015, City Council <br />adopted an amendment to the IS/MND which concluded that some changes to pipeline <br />alignment made during design would not result in new significant impacts, substantially <br />increase the severity of previously disclosed impacts, nor involve any of the other <br />conditions that would require a further environmental review. After completing the <br />construction and placing the RWP system into operation, it was determined that the <br />system could operate more efficiently with increased water pressure at Ken Mercer <br />Sports Park and points south. A pressure boosting pump station was then designed and <br />publicly bid for construction. Upon review of the booster station award package by the <br />State Water Board (SWB) for inclusion of the project under the existing CWSRF Loan <br />and Grant contract, the state requested additional clarification to the IS/MND, identifying <br />the impacts of the booster station. Therefore, this addendum was produced to assess <br />the environmental impacts of these changes. <br />The conclusion of the addendum is that the proposed pressure boosting pump station <br />will not result in any new significant impacts, substantially increase the severity of <br />previously disclosed impacts nor involve any of the other conditions that would require a <br />further environmental review per the Public Resources Code and California <br />Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines. This addendum is an informational <br />document; CEQA and the CEQA Guidelines do not require a subsequent or <br />supplemental negative declaration or environmental impact report for the proposed <br />booster pump station. This document was published for a 15 -day public review on April <br />12, 2018. No comments were received. <br />RECOMMENDATION <br />Adopt the attached resolution approving the Addendum to the initial study/mitigated <br />negative declaration for the City of Pleasanton Recycled Water Project (Attachment 1). <br />FINANCIAL STATEMENT <br />There is no cost associated with the adoption of this Addendum. <br />
