The Sausalito-Marin City Sanitary District (SMCSD) and the National Park Service (NPS) have prepared an Environmental Assessment/Initial Study (EA/IS) per the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) to examine the potential environmental impacts of the proposed project.

This project has been developed to improve regulatory compliance, ADA accessibility, reliability, performance, and to reduce wet weather blending events. To achieve these goals, the existing wastewater facility would be upgraded with the addition of a new headworks primary treatment facility, increased secondary treatment capacity, and upgraded tertiary treatment. The need for the project is driven by the following current conditions:
> The current primary, secondary, and tertiary wastewater treatment facilities need to be upgraded to achieve regulatory compliance with both federal and state agencies.
> The facilities need to be upgraded to improve the quality of the water discharging into San Francisco Bay and prevent bypass events.
> The current facility lacks sufficient administrative and meeting space for SMCSD personnel.

The objectives for this project include the following:
> Eliminate possible sanitary sewer overflows.
> Comply with US Environmental Protection Agency and Regional Water Quality Control Board requirements.
> Improve primary, secondary, and tertiary treatment of wastewater.
> Improve the quality of wastewater that is discharged into the San Francisco Bay.
> Provide upgraded treatment facilities with minimal disruption of existing site and impacts to natural environment.
> Address environmental concerns by siting new and upgraded treatment facilities in a manner that minimizes impacts to natural communities.
> Provide additional administrative office space on-site to address ADA compliance issues without requiring new construction.

The purpose of the public review period for this EA/IS is to provide the opportunity to comment on the adequacy and completeness of the environmental analysis. Copies of the EA/IS will be available at the Sausalito Public Library, the Marin City Library, and online at the NPS website listed below.

Comments should be submitted no later than December 13, 2013. You can submit comments online at the project website printed below. Comments can also be mailed to the following address:
