Notice is hereby given that the Board of Directors of the Los Osos Community Services District will hold a public hearing on December 7, 2023 to consider the adoption of a Mitigated Negative Declaration in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act for the project described below:
DATE: December 7, 2023
TIME: 6:00 p.m.
PLACE: Los Osos Community Services District, 2122 9th Street Suite 106, Los Osos, CA 93402
Project Title: Los Osos Community Services District Water Resiliency Intertie Project
Applicant: Los Osos Community Services District (LOCSD)
Project Location: The intertie would be constructed to the north of the northbound lane of Highway 1 and the proposed pipeline alignment would begin at this location, cross under Highway 1 and extend south toward Quintana Road, west along Quintana Road toward South Bay Boulevard, south along South Bay Boulevard, and would terminate at the LOCSD’s basin at the intersection of Santa Ysabel Avenue and South Bay Boulevard; located primarily in public right of way.
Project Description: LOCSD, the project applicant, proposes the construction and operation of an intertie to the Chorro Valley Pipeline to provide an alternative source of potable for the LOCSD. The project would involve the construction of an intertie to the Chorro Valley Pipeline and the installation of an approximately 2.5-mile pipeline. The proposed intertie would consist of a vault with piping, meter, backflow prevention, valves, and may also consist of a booster pump station that would facilitate a controlled and metered flow of potable water to the LOCSD. It is anticipated that the project may provide 200 acre-feet per year (AFY) of water supply.
The LOCSD has reviewed the above project in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act and finds that an Environmental Impact Report need not be prepared because the proposed project will not have a significant effect on the environment, and that a Mitigated Negative Declaration may be approved for this project. Mitigation measures are proposed to address Aesthetics, Air Quality, Biological Resources, Cultural Resources, Hydrology and Water Quality, Land Use and Planning, Noise, Transportation, Tribal Cultural Resources, and Utilities and Service Systems.
The 30-day public review period for the proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration commenced on September 27, 2023 and ended on October 27, 2023. The Initial Study, which provides the basis for this determination, is available at the LOCSD Office, 2122 9th Street, Los Osos, California. Responses to comments received during the public comment period about the adequacy of the environmental analysis are included with the final Mitigated Negative Declaration.
