NapaSan Recycled Water Reservoir Improvements Project

Final Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration

This Final IS/MND was prepared according to CEQA Guidelines and considers and incorporates all comments received by the State Clearinghouse and other agencies during the 30-day public review period. (The 30-day public review period was established between November 17 and December 19, 2016.) The purpose of this document is to clarify facts set forth in the Public Draft IS/MND, as necessary, to ensure accuracy. The District must consider the IS/MND, together with any comments received, before approving the Proposed Project (Public Resources Code Section 21091(f); and CEQA Guidelines Section 15074). The District has no affirmative duty to prepare formal responses to comments on the Public IS/MND, but should have adequate information on the record explaining why the comment(s) do/does not affect the conclusion that there are no potential significant environmental effects.
The District is required to, however, notify, in writing, any commenting agencies of the date of the meeting on the Proposed Project for which an IS/MND is prepared and will be decided upon for approval (Public Resources Code Section 21092.5(b); and CEQA Guideline Section 15073).

This Final IS/MND is being distributed to agencies, stakeholder organizations, and individuals who commented on the Public Draft IS/MND to ensure that interested parties have an opportunity to express their views regarding the environmental impacts of the project, and to ensure that information pertinent to permits and approvals is provided to decision makers for the District and CEQA responsible agencies.
Comments from the public have been incorporated into the Final IS/MND for the District’s Board of Directors (Board) to consider whether to approve the Proposed Project. 

The District is scheduled to make a final decision on the Proposed Project at its regularly scheduled Board Meeting on January 11, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. in the Board Chambers, 1515 Soscol Ferry Road, Napa CA 94558.
