Curtis Park Village Combined Sewer and Regional Storage Project Initial Study / Mitigated Negative Declaration – CEQA Plus
The Curtis Park Village Combined Sewer project consists of the construction of various sewer segments and a pumping station, as well as the construction of a large underground storage facility within a proposed residential community known as Curtis Park Village.
The project stores approximately 300,000 cubic feet of stormwater during heavy rainfall periods in an effort to lower the hydraulic grade line and thus reducing the potential for flooding in the Curtis Park neighborhood and other surrounding areas. Because of the potential to utilize the Sacramento Revolving Loan Fund, Raney prepared an Initial Study and CEQA Plus document for the City.
The Initial Study, prepared by Raney, analyzed three options for the proposed project to determine the best available option for the City with the least amount of environmental impacts. The Initial Study was prepared concurrently with the preparation the Curtis Park Valley EIRs, necessitating thorough coordination between Raney and the City to ensure that the Initial Study adequately complemented the EIR.
Additionally, Raney coordinated with the Department of Toxic Substances to prepare a CEQA analysis of the updated remedial action plan for the project site while concurrently preparing the EIR for the associated Curtis Park Village project.
