Placer County SMD 3 EA/EIR

Placer County’s proposed SMD 3 Regional Sewer Project (Proposed Project) consists of the construction of a pump station and force main to convey wastewater from the existing SMD 3 wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) to the Sewer Maintenance District 2 (SMD 2) collection system for treatment at the City of Roseville Dry Creek VWVTP. As part of the Proposed Project, the SMD 3 service area would be annexed into the South Placer Wastewater Authority (SPWA) service area boundaries. The goal of the project is to bring the SMD 3 system into compliance with waste discharge requirements (WDR) issued by the Central Valley Regional Water Quality Control Board (CVRWQCB) on June 22, 2007. Prior to approving the Proposed Project, the County must evaluate the project’s potential to result in environmental impacts as required by California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) (Public Resources Code [PRC] 21000 et seq.). Because the Proposed Project will be partially funded through a grant from the Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act administered by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Proposed Project is also subject to evaluation under National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) (42 U.S.C. §432 1-4370). The Corps is the lead agency under NEPA and the County is the lead agency under CEQA.
