Draft Initial Study / Mitigated Negative Declaration - Chromium-6 Water Treatment System Project

The District proposes to construct a well head water treatment system to treat naturally-occurring hexavalent chromium (chromium-6). The Project consists of a new treatment facility at the District’s Bonita well site, a new raw water pipeline from the District’s Seascape well to the San Andreas well to deliver groundwater to the new treatment facility, and replacement groundwater pumps at the Seascape, Bonita and San Andreas wells. A new sewer force main would provide a connection from the treatment facility to the existing County of Santa Cruz Sanitation District sewer system north of the site for the disposal of domestic wastewater and potentially treated brine waste from the Project. The proposed treatment facility would be located at 1500 Bonita Drive; and the associated conveyance pipelines are located in San Andreas Road and Seascape Boulevard.”
