Document Description
The Santa Clara Valley Water District conducts routine maintenance on a variety of water conveyance systems. The maintenance activities have in the past been conducted on a case-by-case basis. This Pipeline Maintenance Program (PMP) defines and provides a guide for implementation of a program for conducting conveyance system inspection, repair, and preventative maintenance activities in a consistent and environmentally sensitive manner. This document is designed to identify and guide the maintenance procedures for the conveyance systems, including the Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) owned Santa Clara pipelines. The PMP identifies the routine maintenance process, the activities, and defines Best Management Practice (BMPs) to protect the environment. The environmental effects of the PMP will be analyzed in a Program EIR/EA. The Program EIR/EA will describe the PMP, the environment that may be affected by the maintenance activities, the potential impact of the activities, and the BMP's that will be implemented to avoid or reduce environmental effects.
