In addition to the relocation project, the District is also completing odor control upgrades at the facility in 2019. Staff anticipates requesting Board approval in April to initiate construction this summer.
The District is continuing to evaluate alternative energy supplies, including potential expansion of the existing solar photovoltaic array located at the facility.
Proposed upgrades for this project are anticipated to be brought to the Board for consideration later this summer.
In June of 2017, the EID Board of Directors authorized a purchase and sale agreement with the CSD for the sale of the District’s Bass Lake parcel that currently supports the District’s wastewater collections operations and maintenance. The purchase and sale agreement is contingent upon the successful relocation of the District’s operations, including completion of environmental review, obtaining necessary County land use approvals, and construction of facility improvements at the EDHWWTP site.
The CSD is seeking to acquire the Bass Lake property as part of the CSD’s Bass Lake Park project. The Bass Lake Park project is a proposed park that would be the largest park and recreational project in the El Dorado Hills area. See https://www.eldoradohillscsd.org/images/special_events/2018_bass_lake.jpg.
The sale of the Bass Lake property will allow the District to utilize the sale proceeds to develop improvements at the EDHWWTP to support the District’s wastewater collections and maintenance operations together with the existing wastewater treatment operations and maintenance activities already existing at the EDHWWTP for over 50 years.
The District is proposing to relocate the Bass Lake wastewater collections operations to be on the same site as the wastewater treatment operations at the EDHWWTP. The purpose of the proposed relocation project is to consolidate the wastewater collections and treatment operations in the El Dorado Hills area, while concurrently addressing facility improvement costs and the increasingly constrained operations of the current Bass Lake property.
In order for the EDHWWTP site to accommodate the relocated operations, the District is proposing to make various site improvements, including
- improved parking and access;
- renovation of an existing building;
- and construction of additional equipment and storage buildings;
The District has submitted an application for a Conditional Use Permit with El Dorado County, to allow for the relocated operations and site improvements at the EDHWWTP. The project’s potential environmental impacts will be evaluated, consistent with the California Environmental Quality Act.
In addition to the relocation project, the District is also completing odor control upgrades at the facility in 2019. For more information about the Odor Control Project, please contact Liz Carrington at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 530.642.4077.
The District is also pursuing the expansion of the existing solar photovoltaic array located at the facility.
