NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The Foothill Feeder is a Pre-stressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP) line that was constructed in 1968. Electromagnetic inspections performed in March 2005 revealed three distressed pipe sections that warrant repair. Based on the locations of the damaged segments and their conditions, two different repair methods will be sued. For the first repair, carbon fiber lining will be used to internally reinforce two distressed pipe segments. For the second repair, one "broken back" pipe segment will be removed and replaced with steel pipe. The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California is proposing to prepare environmental documentation and preliminary design for the Foothill Feeder repairs.
