SUMMARY

The City has completed the environmental analysis for the construction of the Water and Sewer Line Improvements Project (Project) in accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). The current Capital Improvement Program includes funding to replace and/or improve main lines in the City's water distribution and sewer collection systems. Combining both water and sewer projects into one analysis allows for better design efficiencies and economies of scale. A draft Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) has been prepared and circulated for public review. The City received no public comments upon completion of the thirty-day review period. The sewer main improvement part of the Project is currently under design and will be issued for bidding separately.

The Water Line Improvement Project will improve water supply reliability by replacing approximately 26,600 linear feet of existing cast iron, ductile iron (DIP), and asbestos cement (ACP) pipes ranging from 4 to 12-inch with new 6, 8, or 12-inch polyvinyl chloride (PVC), ductile iron (DIP), or earthquake resistant ductile iron (ERDIP) pipes. This project takes place at fourteen locations throughout the City (Attachment IV)....
