2015-004827ENV – Alameda Creek Recapture Project: The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) proposes to implement the Alameda Creek Recapture Project (ACRP) project to recapture water that the SFPUC will release from the Calaveras Reservoir and bypass around the Alameda Creek Diversion Dam (ACDD) when the SFPUC implements the instream flow schedules required as part of the regulatory permits for future operations of Calaveras Reservoir. The project is located in Alameda County, within the Sunol Valley on watershed lands owned by the City and County of San Francisco (CCSF) and managed by the SFPUC. The ACRP is one component of the SFPUC's Water System Improvement Program, which has the overall objective of improving the reliability of the regional water system that serves drinking water to 2.6 million people in the Bay Area.

The ACRP is intended to recapture the water that would have otherwise been stored in Calaveras Reservoir due to the release and bypass of flows from Calaveras Dam and the ACDD, respectively, to meet instream flow requirements, thereby maintaining the historical annual transfers from the SFPUC's Alameda watershed to the regional water system. The ACRP would be operated in conjunction with future operations of the new Calaveras Dam, which is currently under construction and scheduled for completion in spring 2019; permits for future operation of the new dam require that the SFPUC implement instream flow schedules to support fisheries resources in Alameda Creek through bypasses around the ACDD and releases from Calaveras Reservoir.

The proposed project would recapture the bypasses and releases below the ACDD and Calaveras Dam from an existing quarry pit (Pit F2) in the Sunol Valley, in which Alameda Creek water collects through subsurface seepage. Aggregate extraction from Pit F2 was discontinued in 2007, and the pit is currently used only to store and manage water to support active mining in other nearby quarry pits. Using the proposed ACRP facilities described below, the SFPUC would pump water from Pit F2 and transfer the water to existing regional water system facilities in the Sunol Valley for municipal use. Pit F2 is located south of Interstate 680, east of the main channel of Alameda Creek, and between the confluence of Alameda Creek and San Antonio Creek and the confluence with Arroyo de la Laguna. The recapture operation of the ACRP would be conducted within the CCSF's existing pre-1914 appropriative water rights. The volume of recaptured water would be tracked daily to ensure the operation is conducted within these water rights.

The proposed project components include: four turbine pumps mounted on barges that would float on the water surface of Pit F2 and be attached to the shore using a mooring system; four flexible discharge pipelines extending from each turbine pump to a new pipe manifold located on shore; a new pipeline connection between the pipe manifold and the existing Sunol Pump Station Pipeline; throttling valves; a flow meter; an electrical control building; and an electrical transformer and overhead power lines. No construction would occur in the bed, bank, or channel of Alameda Creek.  [THOMAS]

Notice is hereby given to the general public as follows:

  1. The San Francisco Planning Department has prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) on this project. The Draft EIR can be viewed online at CDs and Paper copies of the Draft EIR are available for public review and comment at: (1) San Francisco Planning Department, Planning Information Counter at 1660 Mission Street, 1st Floor, San Francisco; (2) San Francisco Main Library at Civic Center, 100 Larkin Street, San Francisco; (3) Alameda County Main Library, 2400 Stevenson Boulevard, Fremont; (4) Dublin Public Library, 200 Civic Plaza, Dublin; (5) Livermore Public Library, 1188 South Livermore Avenue, Livermore; and (6) Pleasanton Public Library, 400 Old Bernal Avenue, Pleasanton. In addition, referenced materials are available for review by appointment at the San Francisco Planning Department offices at 1650 Mission Street, 4th Floor, San Francisco (call 415-575-9036 to schedule an appointment).
  2. The Draft EIR found that with implementation of mitigation measures identified in the Draft EIR, all project impacts would be less than significant and the project’s contribution to cumulative impacts would not be cumulatively considerable.
  3. A public hearing on this Draft EIR will be held on: Thursday, January 5, 2017 at San Francisco City Hall (Room 400, 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place, San Francisco) beginning at 12:00 p.m. or later (call 415-558-6422 the week of the hearing for a recorded message giving a more specific time).
  4. Public comments on the Draft EIR will be accepted from November 30, 2016 to 5:00 p.m. on January 17, 2017. Written comments may be sent to Lisa Gibson, Acting Environmental Review Officer, San Francisco Planning Department, 1650 Mission Street, Suite 400, San Francisco, CA 94103; faxed to 415-558-6409; or emailed to Comments received at the public hearing and in writing will be responded to in a Responses to Comments document.

If you have any questions about the environmental review of the proposed project, please call the EIR Coordinator, Chris Thomas, at 415-575-9036.
