Phoenix Lake Preservation and Restoration Project
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for the Phoenix Lake Preservation and Restoration Project has been completed and is available for public review. The public may review the IS/MND and all documents referenced in the IS/MND during normal operating hours at the Tuolumne Utilities District office, 18885 Nugget Boulevard, Sonora, CA 95370.
The main components of the Proposed Project include sediment removal and wetland enhancement, sediment reuse and disposal, and tributary improvements. Most of the sediment removed from the lake would be placed at the Cedar Ridge Apple Ranch and on the Summers property immediately north of the lake. Sediment would also be placed in strategic locations within the lake to improve water circulation and manage sedimentation. The Proposed Project would also involve sedimentation and flood protection improvements along lower Chicken Creek and construction of a crossing over Power Creek. Implementation of the Proposed Project would increase the water supply reliability and improve water quality for TUD’s largest water system, serving more than 10,000 people, as well as commercial and agricultural users.
