Document Description
The proposed project involves construction of a new 21-mile Bay Division Pipeline (BDPL) No. 5 in the existing San Francisco Public Utility Commission Right of Way for BDPL Nos. 1 and 2. The project extends from approximately 100' east of Mission Blvd. in Fremont to the Plugas Tunnel Portal. In the East Bay, the proposed project includes a 7-mile segment starting at the Irvington portal and ending at the Newark Valve Lot. There is a 5-mile portion of the proposed project that passes under San Francisco Bay and the adjacent marshlands. This segment is referred to as the Bay Tunnel. The new Bay Tunnel also would replace BDPL Nos. 1 and 2 between the Newark and Ravenswood valve lots. Finally, there is a 9-mile segment of pipelines from the Ravenswood Shaft Site to the Pulgas Tunnel.
