Joint Powers Authority Solar Generation Project Recycled Water Pump Station - Final Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration

 

Mailed Notice of Completion

 

Construct a one-megawatt (1 MW) solar power electricity generation facility at the north canyon of the LVMWD’s Rancho Las Virgenes property, which lies approximately 1,500 feet south of the LVMWD headquarters and recycled water pump station (immediately south of the Calabasas Bark Park). 

 

The principal components of this facility will include: 1) a solar generation facility consisting of photovoltaic solar panels and associated electrical equipment on approximately six acres; 2) a step-up transformer (on the same site); 3) an underground electrical transmission line, consisting of approximately 2,500 linear feet of cable, to link the solar collector site to the recycled water pump facility located at the LVMWD headquarters; and 4) at the termination of the transmission line, a step-down transformer and switchgear would be installed at the recycled water pump station.  The solar panels would be installed in rows on an existing 6-acre predominantly flat pad (the upper terrace portion of the site) along the base of an existing slope. The development footprint of the solar panel installation would be rectangular in shape, approximately 860 feet long by 225 feet across, consisting of 38 rows of panels that pivot to track the sun.  Each row would be approximately 10 feet wide when the panels are in a horizontal position, with a 13-foot space between each row.

 

The project site property is owned by the JPA and is located in the City of Calabasas, east of Las Virgenes Road, along a segment between the intersection of Meadow Creek Lane and A.E. Wright Middle School.  The affected property is identified by the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office as APN numbers 2069-011-904 and 4455-025-900.
