Project Schedule: The project will be performed on a timetable commencing in June 2014, with estimated completion in August 2014. It is anticipated that the total time for dredging activities would not exceed more than approximately 3-4 weeks for each lagoon.
The majority if not all of the dredging will be accomplished during the time that the lagoons are at normal water level. The annual one month period for lagoon draining can be adjusted to work around the project schedule. Project activities will occur on a weekly basis, with project hours within 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. No evening or holiday hours are anticipated.
Potentially Significant Environmental Effects: Significant environmental effects in the following areas are discussed in the Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration: Biological Resources, Cultural Resources, Hazards and Hazardous Materials, Hydrology and Water Quality, and Transportation and Traffic.
