Galt Utilities Master Plan Initial Study
Raney, under contract with the City of Galt, prepared an Initial Study for the City’s Utilities Master Plan, comprised of a Wastewater Collection System Master Plan, Water Distribution System Master Plan, and Storm Drainage System Master Plan.
The City prepared and adopted the Utilities Master Plan in order to meet the anticipated new demand associated with the 2030 General Plan update. According to the General Plan, the service area will increase from approximately 3,763 acres to approximately 8,817 acres at full build-out of the General Plan boundaries.
The Initial Study was prepared to provide program-level mitigation addressing what each future project would need to comply with in order to minimize the need for future environmental documents. The Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration was approved along with the Utilities Master Plan.
