Padre prepared an EIR for the Calleguas Municipal Water District – Las Virgenes Municipal Water District Interconnection Project. The project would improve water reliability for both water districts by connecting the potable water systems of the two regional water purveyors, including construction of new pipelines, a new pump station, and a minor expansion of the Las Vírgenes Water District’s recycled water distribution system. Environmental issues of particular concern analyzed in the EIR included noise, aesthetics, biological resources (Lindero Creek), cultural resources, and hazardous materials (soil contamination). Mitigation measures were provided for project impacts identified for these issue areas to reduce the impacts to a less than significant level. The EIR also evaluated three alternatives in addition to the “No Project Alternative” and the proposed project.
