Project Title: Biogas Renewable Generation Project EIR
Project Location: The Project site is located on an approximately 2.2-acre site completely within the boundaries of the existing Scholl Canyon Landfill (SCLF), in Los Angeles County, at 3001 Scholl Canyon Road, Glendale, California, 91206. Regional access to the landfill is from the Ventura Freeway (State Route 134) at the Figueroa Street exit.
Project Description: The proposed project includes construction and operation of an approximately 12-megawatt power generation facility that would utilize landfill gas as fuel to generate renewable energy. The proposed approximately 2.2-acre power plant would be located on a portion of an approximately 95-acre site owned by Los Angeles County within the City of Glendale's land use and zoning jurisdiction. The proposed Project would beneficially use the landfill gas and would provide environmental and economic benefits regardless of ultimate capacity of the landfill. The proposed project would include the plant facility, natural gas pipeline, water pipeline and two water tanks.
ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW FINDINGS: The Draft EIR has been prepared pursuant to the requirements of the State Guidelines for the implementation of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Pursuant to the findings of the Initial Study, the Draft EIR examines impacts to Aesthetics, Air Quality, Biological Resources, Energy, Geology and Soils, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Hazards and Hazardous Materials, Hydrology and Water Quality, Land Use and Planning, Noise, Transportation, Tribal Cultural Resources, Utilities and Service Systems, and Wildfire.
The Draft EIR found that there would be less than significant impacts to Aesthetics, Air Quality, Energy, Geology and Soils, Greenhouse Gas Emissions, Hydrology and Water Quality, Land Use and Planning, Noise, Transportation and Traffic, Tribal Cultural Resources, and Utilities and Service Systems. Impacts to Biological Resources, Hazards and Hazardous Materials, and Wildfire would be less than significant with mitigation incorporated. The Project would not result in any significant and unavoidable environmental impacts.
DOCUMENT AVAILABILITY: The Draft EIR will be available for public review for a period of 90 days on and after July 2, 2020, on the City’s Project website at: http://glendalebiogasgeneration.com/.
