NOTICE OF INTENT
TO ADOPT A MITIGATED NEGATIVE DECLARATION
for the
PGWWTP Expansion and Energy Recovery Project - City of Roseville

Public Notice is hereby given that an Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) (Environmental Report) is available for public review for the Pleasant Grove Wastewater Treatment Plant (PGWWTP) Expansion and Energy Recovery Project. The IS/MND has · been prepared in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and Environmental Review Process Guidelines for State Revolving Fund Loan Applicants (SWRCB 2015, as updated in 2016) and is expanded beyond the typical content requirements of an initial study to include additional "CEQA-Plus" information.

Project Location: Pleasant Grove Wastewater Treatment Plant and Southern Expansion Parcel located at 5150 Westpark Drive, Roseville, CA.

Project Description: An IS/MND has been prepared by the City of Roseville (City) to evaluate the environmental effects of the PGWWTP Expansion and Energy Recovery Project. The existing PGWWTP was designed to treat 12 million gallons per day (mgd); however, due to higher than anticipated organic loading, the PGWWTP's effective treatment capacity is approximately 9.5 mgd. The Expansion Project would expand and increase treatment capacity of the existing PGWWTP to its original 12 mgd design capacity. The City is also considering the related but separate construction of new energy recovery facilities (Energy Recovery Project) that would beneficially utilize the digester gas produced by anaerobic digestion that is included in the Expansion Project. These projects combined represents the proposed project (Project). The Expansion Project can proceed without the Energy Recovery Project.

Document Review and Availability: In accordance with CEQA Guidelines Section 15105, the public review and comment period will extend for 38 days starting December 19, 2016 and ending January 25, 2017 at 5:00p.m. Although not required, this includes an additional eight days in recognition that the public review period extends over the holidays.

By rconaadmin, in News,

Fire Chief Rick Bartee was guest speaker at the 9/15/2016 RCONA NA Rep Board meeting.  He had just returned this date from Washington D.C. where he spoke at Congress as a National Representative for Search and Rescue organizations.  The City of Roseville was fortunate to hire Chief Bartee one year ago following his 35 years with Phoenix Fire Department, where he had been Assistant Fire Chief.
 
After his first year with the Roseville department, Chief Bartee shared his initial observations and wish list of programs to develop:
Staffing—the department has just over 119 positions staffed; the number hasn’t increased in 10 years, although they should be hiring a few more firefighters next month.  He said trained firefighters from other areas are anxious to come to Roseville.   Civilian volunteers--to help with the miscellaneous chores—he will have Jaime Garrett, their PIO, send out a list of chores for RCONA to share with our neighborhoods that volunteers could do.   Adding Station 8 within the new Campus Oaks development is a first priority; as a West Roseville resident he is very aware of the needs to get it built soon. Build a Community Emergency Response Team (CERT), and train civilians using grant funds.  He said Roseville used to have such a team and he’d like to get it going again. Develop an Urban Search and Rescue Task Force in Roseville—he said the staff is well educated and certainly capable.  Dog teams (at least 4) are required. Develop ‘automatic aid’ with our neighboring cities as opposed to the current ‘mutual aid’ system which requires more time with communication delays; hopes to work on border issues with other areas. The City has a 5-year contract with AMR ambulance service, but he’d like to see the fire department once again consider developing its own transport service (as Phoenix and other areas do) for faster response times and better financial management.   
He also presented several updates on what’s happening with the Fire Department:
3 new fire engines arrive next month. The City has a new Green ‘OES’ Wildfire Truck which will be used for a strike team (when our crews are sent out to help fight large fires around the state).   The department dispatch system has an auto-locator feature (proximity dispatching)—they hope to start using it and be able to send the closest unit when needed.  
Various questions were asked from RCONA members, here’s some of the questions and chief Bartee’s responses:  
Response times:  are going up with increased traffic issues and the need for more stations as the city grows and expands.  They are also working to get faster ‘turnout’ times (from receiving a call to getting rolling). What happens when fire units believe they’ve come across a crime?  Like the county’s drug unit, Station 1 has a hazmat task force in place, able to seal off a scene and notify the police department; they are working to educate firefighters what to look for.   Use of ‘Knox Box’:  The long-time requirement of Knox boxes on buildings has expanded to homes.  These boxes, mounted on homes, can help when someone needs assistance but the doors are locked.  If a home is registered with a Knox box on the police/fire emergency registration, they won’t have to break in a door to gain access to someone who needs help.  He will have the Fire Department’s PIO look into procedures and publicizing the boxes for home use.  [Various types of ‘Knox boxes’ are available online starting at about $25.]
