Document Description
The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) proposes to shut down the Upper Feeder pipeline for inspection and to repair an expansion coupling at the pipeline's bridge crossing of the Santa Ana River. Approximately 65 acre-feet of water will be discharged into the Santa Ana River via an existing groundwater replenishment service connection at a flow rate of 25 cubic feet per second (cfs). Additional discharge will occur in the vicinity of McAllister Street in unincorporated Riverside County to inspect the pipeline around Station 119+00. The McAllister Street blow-off will be used for discharge. Approximately 2.5 acre-feet of water will be discharged from the McAllister Street blow-off at a flow rate of 5 cfs. In addition, Metropolitan also proposes to remove vegetation that is infringing upon and impeding operations along the Upper Feeder at the Santa Ana River Bridge crossing.
