APPLICANT: Andrew Ferrigno, Public Works Department, City of Huntington Beach
PROPERTY OWNER: City of Huntington Beach; Sunset Beach Sanitary District, Caltrans District #12; California State Lands Commission
REQUEST: To analyze the potential environmental impacts associated with replacement of existing sewer facilities.

Construction includes new gravity sewers from the existing lift stations to the new Lift Station #C; a new 12-inch forcemain from new Lift Station #C across the Warner Avenue Bridge to Weatherly Lane; and a new 15-inch gravity sewer from the new 12-inch forcemain terminus near Weatherly Lane to Edgewater Avenue. The proposed project has been designed to serve existing demand with no net increase in an overall sewer capacity.
