PREPARED BY: Holly R. Owen, Planning Director

That the City Council adopt a resolution approving the Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration for improvements to Municipal Well No. 17.
BACKGROUND AND DISCUSSION:
The project is the final step in bringing Municipal Well No. 17 on line that of installing a vertical turbine pump and associated facilities for an existing well that was drilled in 2005 but never equipped for production.
The existing well was located and constructed as part of a separate project.
New well site equipment and improvements will include an estimated 2,000 gpm, 150-hp well pump with associated discharge piping, valving and a treatment system. The site itself will have an electrical service meter and transformer, site security, grading and lighting, paving, storm drain collection and HVAC and an emergency power generator.
Specific details regarding the components of the water treatment system and electrical equipment are provided in the project description and background analysis of the Initial Study, attached. A perimeter fence (CMU block) will also be constructed around the well site.
Well No. 17 is located on Lot 54 of the Sun Valley Estates Subdivision, northeast corner of Sun Valley Avenue and Spring Brook Drive in the City of Livingston (APN 047-581-006).
An Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration was circulated for public comment and submitted to the State Clearinghouse. The 21-day comment period for responding to the Initial Study and proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration had not expired at the time of the writing of this staff report.
Any comments received on this project will be submitted as a supplemental handout at the time of the hearing before the City Council and, if deemed significant, will be incorporated into the mitigation measures for the project.
Should Council adopt the Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration for the project, a Notice of Determination will be filed with the Merced County Clerk within 5 days.
Filing the Notice of Determination for the Mitigated Negative Declaration will require a one-time environmental document filing fee of $2,260.00 to the Merced County Clerk and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
