Document Description
Includes new facilities and upgrades to existing facilities in Contra Costa County. In December 2006, the EBMUD Board of Directors approved the Water Treatment and Transmission Improvements Program (WTTIP) and certified an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) on the WTTIP. Since then, EBMUD has advanced the design of some WTTIP projects and is now proposing to modify the Moraga Road Pipeline. The purpose of the Moraga Road Pipeline is to provide additional treated water transmission capacity to portions of Moraga, Lafayette, and Orinda. The Moraga Road Pipeline alignment is approximately 3 miles long, extending between the Lafayette Water Treatment Plant in Lafayette and the Moraga/Draeger Drive intersection in the Town of Moraga. Consistent with CEQA, the SEIR evaluates environmental impacts associated with proposed changes in two locations along the proposed pipeline alignment. Between Old Jonas Hill Road in Lafayette and Sky-Hy Drive in Moraga construction of the project would require full closure of Moraga Road during construction hours for the pipeline segment from Nemea Court to Sky-Hy Drive. At the intersection of Rheem Boulevard and Moraga Road, open-trench construction (instead of bore-and-jack construction), with construction hours up to 24 hours per day, is now proposed.
