May 26, 2021


An Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND for the Lower Fawn Drive Sewer Rehabilitation Project (Project) was released for public and agency review. The Project is located near the intersection of Butterfield Road and Fawn Drive and entails the construction and rehabilitation, within the existing alignment, of approximately 1,550 linear feet of sanitary sewer mains and related appurtenances within the unincorporated community of Sleepy Hollow, located within the County of Marin. The primary objective of this Project is to provide needed capacity and correct defects downstream of improvements constructed in fall 2020 to relieve hydraulic and structural deficiencies and reduce groundwater infiltration with aging RVSD infrastructure. This portion of the system was originally installed in the 1940s and contains numerous structural and operation and maintenance (O&M) defects, with several pipes currently assigned to a 3-month cleaning frequency. The public review and commenting period for the IS/MND ends on June 25, 2021. All comments should be sent to Steve Moore, Ross Valley Sanitary District, 2960 Kerner Boulevard, San Rafael, California 94901 or emailed to info@rvsd.org.
