San Gabriel Tower Communication Line Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California's (Metropolitan) proposed project will consist of replacing the functions of an existing 1,500-foot communication cable with a radio communication system to remotely monitor and control flows to the San Gabriel Control Tower on the Upper Feeder and to Service Connection USG-3. Metropolitan regularly relies on this line to make changes in flow deliveries to the Upper San Gabriel Valley Water District. This project represents no significant modification to the system currently used to monitor and control flows and involves no expansion of existing use. Project activities involve the installation of a telephone pole supporting the hardware for a microwave radio link at a water tank.
