Type, Section or Code
sec. 15269 (b)(c)
Reasons for Exemption
This 48 year old trunk sewer line has not been accessed for cleaning and maintenance for many years. In addition, recent inspection has shown: deteriorated, broken, and sagging pipelines; heavy root intrusion; displaced joints; multiple cracks; and signigicant sludge buildup in many sections of the line. Due to these reasons there is a high potential for sewage spills. The average daily flow is approx. 0.16 million gallons per day (mgd) and the peak flow is a high as 0.37 mgd. Therefore, in the event of a sewage spill, a signigicant amount of flow would reach Mission Bay (public waters) jeopardizing public health and safety.
