Document Description
DWR proposes to implement improvements to approximately 560 linear feet of the South Bay Aqueduct located within an existing landside area (Mile Post 38.7 - 39.5) within the SBA easement. The landslide is affecting pipeline stability. DWR proposes to abandon approximately 560 feet of existing pipeline, install new parallel pipeline, and install piles adjacent to and upslope of Piedmont Road to stabilize the landslide. The existing pipeline is located within the center median of Piedmont Boulevard within the City of Milpita. Implementation will require the removal of ornamental landscaping trees.
