Redmont Pump Station Replacement Project

Under contract to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), Aspen Environmental Group completed an Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) that addressed replacement of a water supply pump station located in the community of Sunland in the City of Los Angeles, California.  The station is known as the Redmont Pump Station, and its replacement involved construction and operation of a new pump station at a site located approximately 1,500 feet northwest of the existing pump station site, as well as construction and operation of two 1,500 linear feet underground water pipelines in a new right-of-way to connect the new pump station to the reservoir located at the old pump station site.  The analysis of the IS/MND additionally included demolition of the old pump station upon completion of the new pump station. 

Key issues addressed in the IS/MND included construction-related noise, geology and soils due to placement of the pipelines, and traffic and transportation, also due to placement of the pipelines within a major road artery of the surrounding neighborhood. Potential impacts related to aesthetics were evaluated due to compatibility concerns about the pump station and surrounding residential uses. Cultural and paleonotological resources impacts were evaluated due to earth-disturbing activities and pipeline trenching.  In support of the IS/MND’s analysis for cultural and paleontological resources, Aspen coordinated completion of a Phase I Cultural and Paleontologic Resource Assessment.  Following completion of the public and agency review period, Aspen additionally assisted the LADWP with the preparation of responses to comments that were received on the IS/MND for the purposes of decision-making hearings.
