Talbert Lake Mitigated Negative Declaration

Summary: The Talbert Lake Diversion Project is a Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control Board-approved Supplemental Environmental Project (SEP) involving the construction of a natural treatment system in the northeastern corner of Central Park in Huntington Beach, on the eastern side of Goldenwest Street. The proposed project would divert up to 3 million gallons per day (mgd) of dry weather flows from the East Garden Grove Wintersburg Channel (EGGWC) into a newly constructed treatment wetlands system for water quality improvement purposes. Project components include the construction of a diversion structure such as a rubber dam within the EGGWC to divert dry weather flows either into an existing water line in Goldenwest Street, or the existing storm drain system within Gothard Street, for transport to the newly constructed treatment wetlands within Central Park.

The 30-day comment period for the draft Mitigated Negative Declaration for the Talbert Lake Diversion Project begins June 19, 2008 and ends Friday, July 18th. In addition, a public information and comment meeting will be held at the Central Library on Tuesday, July 1st at 6 pm in Room C/D. Copies of the draft MND are available for the public to review at the Planning Dept. counter, City Clerk’s office, Central Library and below.
