Pasadena Hahamongna watershed Modification to Conditional Use Permit #6222 Public Hearing Jan 6, 2021 5:30pm
 
Important hearing coming up regarding water rights in Hahamongna (the JPL canyon) and along the Gabrielino Trail.
Did you know the city of Pasadena holds water rights to the Hahamongna watershed, and has plans to unnaturally spread & pump more water (than they already do) from the basin under a plan that appears to ignore environmental concerns?
This coming Wednesday, January 6th, is your chance to attend a public hearing wherein the engineering project will be discussed:
MOD TO CUP #6222: 3420 AND 3500 N. ARROYO BLVD. – COUNCIL DISTRICT #1
Modification to Conditional Use Permit #6222: To allow the repair and replacement of City’s water infrastructure facilities within the Upper Arroyo Seco that were damaged by debris flows caused by storms following the 2009 Station Fire. Damage to these structures has greatly reduced the City’s capacity to divert water from the Arroyo Seco for spreading and pumping credits. The proposed improvements would allow for increased utilization of the City’s pre-1914 surface water rights from the Arroyo Seco. A Conditional Use Permit is required for any improvements within the Open Space (OS) Zoning District.
Recommendation:
1) Adopt a resolution certifying the Final Environmental Impact Report (SCH No. 2014101022) adopting findings, and adopting the Mitigation Monitoring Reporting Program;
2) Adopt a resolution adopting a Statement of Overriding Consideration for the project; and
3) Approve the Modification to Conditional Use Permit #6222 with conditions.
Case Manager: Beilin Yu
