technologies to be employed in site remediation and Title 27 landfill closure must be identified, evaluated, and approved by the appropriate regulatory agencies, and that remediation and landfill closure activities approved by regulatory agencies must be completed prior to initiation of Project Site development in areas requiring such remediation and landfill closure. Such activities will require specific project-level environmental analysis under CEQA to determine the appropriate form of environmental documentation to support discretionary actions by the RWQCB and DTSC associated with site remediation and Title 27 landfill closure.
Additionally, with regard to water supply, this EIR is intended to assess the impacts that would occur with the proposed transfer of water from its source to the Project Site based on the current information and level of detail available in relation to the facilities and operation of the proposed water transfer agreement. Prior to final approval of the proposed water supply agreement, additional project-level environmental analysis of the proposed transfer of water will be required under CEQA to determine the appropriate form of environmental documentation.
As discussed above, this EIR includes a program-level analysis intended to provide a comprehensive environmental review of proposed Project Site development and may be used to facilitate evaluation of
evaluatefuture site-specific development proposals within the Baylands, as well as other activities, such as site remediation and the proposed water supply agreement. The EIR analyzes certain specific Project components for which more clearly defined plans, construction methods, and operational requirements are currently available. Such actions includethe proposed Specific Plan for two of the four Concept Plan scenarios being evaluated, Concept Plans for the CPP and CPP-V scenarios, and the proposed expansion of the Recology facility included as part of the CPP-V Concept Plan scenario. While the proposed Brisbane Baylands Specific Plan for the DSP and DSP-V scenarios provides zoning requirements, design guidelines, preliminary grading, infrastructure, and landscaping plans, and other information required by State law, the specific plan does not include site-specific development plans, such as detailed site plans and architectural design for specific building sites within the Baylands. Neither state law nor City ordinance require the provision of such detailed information as part of a specific plan. Thus, even though the proposed Specific Plan provides more detailed information on proposed development than clearly defined plans, construction methods, and operational requirements for the DSP and DSP-V scenarios than is available for the CPP and CPP-V Concept Plan scenarios, subsequent project-level environmental review will be required pursuant to the provisions of CEQA for subsequent site-specific development proposals under all scenarios, site remediation, and the proposed water supply agreement.
