Redmont Pump Station and Tank Project Technical Support

Under an on-call contract to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), Aspen prepared technical reports and EIR support for the Redmont Pump Station and Tank Project. The Project is proposed to replace the existing Redmont Pump Station facility with a new pump station and new steel reservoir tank. The Project is necessary to provide a reliable water source to the Sunland-Tujunga community of the City of Los Angeles. The Project would be located at the existing pump station and reservoir site, and construction would occur in two phases over a two-year period as to not interrupt service.

The Aspen team was originally tasked with preparing four technical reports to support preparation of a Focused EIR:

  • The Protected Tree Report provided an analysis and recommendations pertaining to the required removal of two Coast Live Oak trees within the site.
  • The Air Quality Technical Report provided emission calculations for construction and operation of the Project, comparing estimated emissions against applicable SCAQMD daily thresholds and proposed mitigation.
  • The Noise Technical Report provided estimated noise levels during construction and operation of the Project, comparing these levels against applicable City of Los Angeles thresholds and proposed mitigation.
  • The Traffic Technical Report provided construction access routes, estimated daily traffic volumes from construction, and conducted a LOS analysis for study area roadway segments and intersections. Mitigation to reduce potential traffic flow impacts was proposed.

Upon completion of the technical reports, Aspen prepared the EIR Project Description and assisted LADWP in the preparation and production of the Focused EIR, which fully analyzed potential air quality, noise, and traffic impacts associated with the Project. Aspen also provided support to LADWP at the Draft EIR public meeting and assisted in preparing the Final EIR.
