The Padre Dam Municipal Water District (PDMWD), as the lead agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), has prepared and plans to adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for the Ray Stoyer Water Recycling Facility Phase I Expansion Project (herein referred to as "project"). This notice is intended to notify agencies and members of the public that may be interested in the project as to the availability of the MND, and the procedures for public review and comment on the MND.

Project Title Ray Stoyer Water Recycling Facility Phase I Expansion Project

Project Applicant: Padre Dam Municipal Water District

State Clearinghouse Number: None Yet Assigned

Project Location: The proposed project site is located west of Sycamore Canyon Road, north of Carlton Oaks Drive, approximately 0.7 mile north of Santee Lakes in the City of Santee. The majority of the project would be located at the Ray Stoyer WRF property, located at 12001 Fanita Parkway, with an off-site improvement (influent pump station upgrade) located near the Padre Dam Operations Center site, on Carlton Oaks Drive, approximately three miles south of the Ray Stoyer WRF property. Access to the WRF site is provided from Fanita Parkway via a private asphalt road maintained by PDMWD.

Project Description: The proposed project would expand the capacity of the Ray Stoyer WRF from 2 million gallons per day (MGD) to 6 MGD. The capacity would be increased by installing additional conventional treatment facilities, converting biological basins to nitrogen removal only, installing a 2.2 MGD (annual average) Advanced Water Treatment Plant (AWTP), and upgrading pumps at an off-site influent pump station. The major improvements would be completed within the existing WRF site limits. The proposed expansion of the existing WRF facility would require the construction of new equipment and facilities, including a headworks facility, primary clarifiers, secondary clarifiers, an equalization basin, and filters. The proposed expansion would also require the modification of the existing biological basins (including the existing Bardenpho Tank) at the WRF to perform nitrification and denitrification (NDN) only. The 2.2 MGD AWTP would be constructed on the WRF property, south of the existing WRF and the first holding pond. The AWTP would further treat recycled water (which has been treated at the WRF) to a level where it could be introduced into a groundwater basin. A 20-inch pipeline would be required to transmit flow from the WRF to the AWTP.

Probable Environmental Effects: The Initial Study (IS)/Draft MND identified potentially significant impacts to biological and cultural resources as well as environmental impacts from construction and operational noise. Mitigation measures, as described in the Draft MND, have been incorporated into the project that either eliminate the project’s impacts or reduce them to less than significant levels.

Availability of Document: Pursuant to CEQA, the IS/Draft MND is being made available for a public review period, which is to commence on July 30, 2015 and end on August 31, 2015. The IS/Draft MND and the supporting technical appendices are available for review at the offices of the Padre Dam Municipal Water District, 9300 Fanita Parkway, Santee, CA 92071. The Draft MND and appendices are also available for review and downloading from the Padre Dam Municipal Water District’s website: Additional copies may also be viewed at the following locations:

Comments: Padre Dam Municipal Water District will be accepting written comments regarding the Draft MND. Written comments should be directed to the Padre Dam Municipal Water District’s environmental consultant, HELIX Environmental Planning, Inc., 7578 El Cajon Blvd., Suite 200, La Mesa, CA 91941. Comments should be received no later than August 31, 2015. For additional information regarding the environmental review for this project, please email Arne Sandvik, P.E. at
