VRPA Technologies
prepared a Noise Study Report and Air Quality and Greenhouse Gas Impact Assessment for the Surf Ranch Development in Kings County. The Project sought to facilitate and permit a primary and secondary use for the 155-acre privately owned site for the full-time maintenance and operation of the existing wave generation system and ancillary structures for research and development activities and surfing programs. For the preparation of the Noise Study Report, VRPA conducted noise level measurements at the project site, then analyzed the results to determine potential sensitive receptors in the area that may be impacted by the Project. VRPA also conducted a thorough air quality analysis of the potential environmental impacts of the Project, including anticipated greenhouse gas and criteria pollutant emissions. VRPA evaluated short-term and long-term air quality impacts based on California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (SJVAPCD) significance criteria.
