New infrastructure includes construction of a 38-foot by 90-foot pile-supported utility building, water tank and pad, and a new 15-foot by 20-foot generator pad with fuel tank pad and dispenser system connection to the utility building. A new 200 linear elevated utility duct would transfer treated wastewater from the utility building and terminate at a new sewer outfall located within an unnamed pond. Approximately 400 linear feet of buried utility duct for water and wastewater lines will be constructed north of the property, originating from the LKSD Annex, beneath Kaugia Street, and tie into the existing utility infrastructure. Additional work includes abandonment of the existing sewage lagoon, at the southeast corner of the property and installation of fencing around the proposed generator tank, water tank pads and proposed effluent receiving pond. Gravel would be discharged into jurisdictional wetlands for the purpose of providing work spaces for the contractor, storage yard areas and increase equipment accessibility to various locations within the project site, as well as, the construction of improved site drainage (i.e., ditches, swales).
