NOTICE OF INTENT TO ADOPT

A MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION FOR THE

SKEDADDLE

INTERCONNECTION PROJECT

LASSEN MUNICIPAL

UTILITY DISTRICT

The Lassen Municipal Utility District (LMUD) has prepared a Draft Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (Draft IS/MND) pursuant to the California Environment Quality Act (CEQA) for the proposed Skedaddle Interconnection Project. The Draft IS/MND details the Skedaddle Interconnection Project and evaluates and describes its potential environmental impacts.

Description of the Proposed Project

LMUD is proposing the development of the Skedaddle Interconnection Project in the unincorporated area of Wendel, Lassen County, California. The project would include the following components:

• Skedaddle Substation – a 345/60-kV electrical Substation.

• Shaffer Substation – a 345-kV electrical Switching Station.

• Overhead 60kV electrical transmission line to interconnect the Skedaddle Substation into LMUD’s existing 60-kV transmission system via a new 60-kV Antola Road Switching Station.

• Access roads to provide access to and between the Skedaddle and Shaffer Stations.

• Overhead 345-kV transmission line to interconnect the Skedaddle and Shaffer Stations.

• Overhead 345-kV transmission line to interconnection of the Shaffer Switching Station to the existing NV Energy 345-kV Reno-Alturas line.

• Temporary construction staging areas including one located south of proposed Stations (approximately 1000 by 300 feet) and another area to the east of Shaffer Switching Station (approximately 400 by 300 feet).

The Skedaddle Interconnection Project is expected to result in 14 acres of permanent disturbance and 10 acres of temporary disturbance for construction and staging activities. The Skedaddle Interconnection Project area is not present on any of the lists complied by the Department of Toxic Substances Control under Government Code Section §65962.5.

Public Review Period

LMUD will receive comments on the IS/MND for a 30-day period commencing from June 19, 2019 to July 22, 2019. Written comments on the Draft IS/MND must be postmarked or received by hardcopy or email no later than close of business July 22, 2019. Following the end of the public comment period, LMUD will prepare a Final IS/MND that will respond to comments received on the Draft IS/MND. LMUD will then consider adopting the Final IS/MND at a future Board meeting. Comments on the Skedaddle Interconnection Project Draft IS/MND should be sent to:

SCOPE OF SERVICES

PROJECT DESCRIPTION – Material Testing

The overall project consists of the rehabilitation of existing pavement surfaces for local streets. Some streets have been identified for pulverization and re-establishment of appropriate grades and cross slopes utilizing grindings salvaged from other areas of the project. Other streets require a simple edge grind and thin overlay (up to 0.25′). Localized areas have also been determined to need isolated base rock repair and re-establishment of a proper structural section. The consultant shall provide supporting materials and construction related testing along with related engineering services per the following:

• Conducting laboratory analysis tests of treated and untreated bases and basement soils in accordance with the City of Susanville’s Quality Assurance Program;

• Conducting relative compaction tests of treated and untreated bases and basement soils by using nuclear gauge in accordance with the City of Susanville’s Quality Assurance Program;

• Conducting asphalt testing for asphalt concrete, asphalt cement, and liquid asphalt in accordance with the City of Susanville’s Quality Assurance Program, attached as Attachment ‘2’.

• Perform other quality control related services in the field as detailed on Page 1 and following regarding field representative in the observation and making of professional opinions regarding the contractor’s efforts to ensure the Contractor’s delivery of proper materials and application methods.

The tests to be performed shall meet all FHWA requirements for quality control and, at a minimum, be at the frequency indicated in the Testing Frequency Table or as directed by the City Engineer. The number of tests to be performed is provided in the 2017 Construction Manual, Chapter 6 at Table 6-1.13 and the project specifications for testing of aggregate material used in the production of asphalt.

PROJECT SCHEDULE

The project schedule relative to this portion of the work has not been fully determined to date. However, work relative to needed materials oversight is anticipated to commence in late June or early July, weather permitting. The Contractor will be issued a Notice To Proceed commencing on or about July 1, 2019 with sixty (60) working days allocated to complete all aspects of the projects, complete and in place, suitable for the public to navigate City public streets. The anticipated date of completion (considering weather days) is approximately September 30, 2019.

The consultant selected shall be available for the duration of the contract, once paving operations commence (estimated to be on or about the week of the 19th of August 2019) and must be able to respond within 24 hours for testing or pulling of samples as needed. More definitive dates will be made available once the contractor provides a schedule and it is approved by the City. The Contractor must be able to maintain suitable progress, without delay, and cannot be held back as a result of unresponsive test result reporting.

Initial efforts by the Contractor shall consist of demolition for removal of existing pedestrian ramps and replacing them with ADA compliant Portland cement concrete material. Subsequent efforts will consist of the repair of unstable (dig outs and stabilization) various street segments, some are entire City blocks along with isolated areas of localized base failures present in otherwise stable pavement areas and cross slope correcting where identified in the projects plans or as directed by the City Engineer or his authorized representative.
