ECORP Consulting, Inc. provided on-call environmental services for water and wastewater projects in the cities of Yucaipa and Calimesa with the Yucaipa Valley Water District. Under this contract, ECORP was responsible for determining the appropriate environmental documentation and studies needed to comply with CEQA and to obtain the appropriate environmental permits for YVWD projects. Task orders completed under this on-call contract included the preparation and filing of categorical exemptions for small projects, the preparation of IS/MNDs for potable and non-potable pipelines and reservoirs, and construction monitoring. Examples of projects completed under this contract include:

  • MND Addendum for the Expansion and Upgrade of the Henry N. Wachholz Wastewater Treatment Plant. The Yucaipa Valley Water District proposed upgrades and an expansion of its existing wastewater treatment plant. Environmental documentation (a Mitigated Negative Declaration) had been prepared and approved for the project. Subsequent changes to the plan were proposed that necessitated an Addendum to the MND.

  • IS/MND and Permitting for a 30 Potable Water Pipeline. Prepared an IS/MND and associated permit applications for a new, 2-mile, 30 potable water pipeline, which would cross Wildwood Creek. Coordinated with City of Yucaipa, which was proposing a new bridge at the pipeline location.
  • IS/MND and Permitting for a 30 Potable Water Pipeline. Prepared an IS/MND and associated permit applications for a new, 2-mile, 30 potable water pipeline, which was proposed to cross Wilson Creek. A cultural resources survey of the pipeline alignment was also completed.
  • IS/MND for Coussoulis Reservoir. Prepared an IS/MND for a new 5-million-gallon potable water reservoir on 5 acres in the City of Calimesa. A cultural resources survey of the proposed reservoir location was also completed.

  • IS/MND for Chapman Heights Road/Sand Canyon Road Non-Potable Water Pipelines. Prepared an IS/MND for the installation of non-potable water pipelines in 2 roadways in the City of Yucaipa. The IS/MND was prepared on an expedited schedule to meet construction deadlines. A cultural resources survey of the pipeline alignments was also completed..
  • MND Addendum for Non-Potable Water Pipeline Extensions. Prepared an MND Addendum for the extension of the non-potable water system by approximately 3 miles. The MND Addendum was prepared on an expedited schedule to meet construction deadlines.
  • MND Addendum for Non-Potable Pipeline to Water Filtration Plant. Prepared an MND Addendum, which examined a new route for the incoming pipeline to a new water filtration plant. The MND Addendum was prepared on an expedited schedule to meet construction deadlines.
  • CEQA Plus IS/MND for Slack Assessment District.. The YVWD proposed to create a sewer assessment district to connect approximately 200 parcels that were served by individual septic systems to the sanitary sewer system. An Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration was prepared for the installation of approximately 9,100 linear feet (1.7 miles) of sewer lines. Because the project would be funded by the State Revolving Fund loan program, the IS/MND was prepared to CEQA-Plus specifications.
