Document Description
The proposed project will construct the following facilities: 1) A pipeline and related facilities connecting the Sacramento International Airport domestic water system to the existing City of Sacramento (the "City") water supply distribution system. 2) A turnout and pipeline extension to provide water to the Metro Air Park. 3) Two 1.4 million-gallon water tanks and booster pumping station. These new facilities will be used to receive potable water from the City's water supply system under the Agreement for Wholesale and/or Wheeling Water Service ("the Agreement"). The proposed project consists of approving the Agreement and the new facilities that will be constructed to supply water under the Agreement. The Sacramento County Airport System (SCAS) will construct the new water main that will connect to the City's existing water distribution system on El Centro Road. The pipe will be installed within El Centro Road in the City limits and extend outside the City limits along Bayou Road, cross below Power Line Road and connect to the two 1.4 million-gallon water tanks. From the water tank site the pipe will be installed beneath Interstate 5 east of the Airport Boulevard off-ramp, extend adjacent to the east side of Airport Boulevard and connect to the existing water stub south of Airport Boulevard. The portion of pipe within the County will be 24 inches in diameter up to the Metro Air Park stub. The portion of pipe from Metro Air Park to the City connection will be 30 inches in diameter. The Metro Air Park connection will be separately constructed under Interstate 5 and within Metro Air Park, as part of the Metro Air Park development. Note: Bayou Road is on the south side of Interstate 5; there is also a North Bayou Road located north of Interstate 5.
