"The area south of Oso will simply utilize the future existing facilities that the Ranch will build and the County's MS4 permit."

 

The TCA/CalTrans and the County of Orange are using the Ranch's Waste Water Discharge Permit for three projects: 

Oso Bridge Project 

Oso Bridge Gap Closure Project

Los Patrones aka "F" Street Project

(1) Certification Number R9-2014-0144 expressly states:

"F" Street is not the Tesoro Extension of SR-241 that was denied waste water discharge requirements by the San Diego Water Board in 2013 (proceeding on Tentative Order R9-2013-0007) or a facility related to SR-241 and the Tesoro Extension is not covered by this Certification. "F" Street will be operated by the County of Orange as a free road." 

(2) Despite the explicit language in Certification Number R9-2014-0144  Caltrans/TCA/County of Orange/and Rancho Mission Viejo have in fact proceeded to grade the Tesoro Extension of the 241 Toll Road Oso Bridge Gap Closure Project on Tesoro High School Property without any setback, without the EIR required protective barrier (a 10' high 3,770' long wall), and without the minimal vegetative screen required prior to issuance of the grading permit per CEQA. 

(3) Despite the explicit language in Certification Number R9-2014-0144  Caltrans/TCA/County of Orange and Rancho Mission Viejo have designed drainage of the Tesoro Extension of the 241 Toll Road Oso Bridge Gap Closure Project to drain into, and underneath Tesoro High School property due to flaws in the Certificate of Compliance Parcels (125-096-59, 60, 69 and 82). The work is being done under  Certification Number R9-2014-0144 with the parties representing publicly that the Oso Bridge Gap Closure Project has not begun and that the work being done is the "F" Street from A Street to Oso Parkway Project aka Los Patrones Project.

(4) Despite repeated requests to STOP WORK and verify that the work that is being done is in compliance with Certification Number R9-2014-0144, no party will comply, the work continues, and the PUBLICS request for verification is ignored.

(5) It is my concern that there has been a substantial change in the alignment of the Tesoro Extension of the 241 Toll Road that was administratively approved to avoid re-opening CEQA, NEPA, and the California Coastal Commission review.

(6) The Tesoro Extension of the 241 Toll Road from Oso Parkway to the I-5 Freeway at the County Line is being built in "segments" that are administratively approved for the specific purpose of avoiding CEQA, NEPA and the California Coastal Commission.
