4.8 HAZARDS AND HAZARDOUS MATERIALS <br />4.8-1 <br /> <br /> <br />This section addresses the subject of hazards and hazardous materials with <br />respect to the buildout of the proposed project. The project, a residential <br />development, would not include the routine transport of hazardous materials <br />and the project site is not on a list of hazardous materials sites pursuant to <br />Government Code Section 65962.5 (this is discussed further below).1 The site <br />is not located at the base of a major slope and would not be subject to ava- <br />lanche hazards. Seismic hazards and flooding hazards are discussed in Section <br />4.6, Geology, Soils, and Seismicity, and Section 4.9, Hydrology and Water <br />Quality, respectively. Therefore, this section includes an assessment of po- <br />tential impacts associated with the development of the project with respect to <br />the wildfire and high voltage transmission line hazards in the project area. <br /> <br />The information and analysis in this section is primarily based on the follow- <br />ing documents, which is included in Appendix J, Geotechnical and Hazards <br />Data, of this Draft EIR: <br />¤ Geologic, Geohazards, and Environmental Hazards Evaluation Report Up- <br />date prepared by Geocon Consultants, Inc., June 2006. <br /> <br />The abovementioned report is based on a review of the following reports <br />previously prepared for the project site: <br />¤ Geologic, Geohazards, and Environmental Evaluation, prepared by Geocon <br />Consultants, Inc., June 2005. <br />¤ Geotechnical Engineering Report for Tahoe Boca, Truckee, California, pre- <br />pared by Holdredge & Kull, 2003. <br /> <br />The Getotechnical and Hazards Report includes a third Party Peer Review of <br />the Phase 1 Environmental Site Assessment, herein referenced as Phase 1 Re- <br />port, prepared by Moss Group, May 2000, which was based on the following: <br />¤ Reconnaissance-level physical inspection of the project site. <br /> <br />1 California Department of Toxic Substance Control, Envirostor, Hazardous <br />Waste and Substance List, September 9, 2011.
