The project is situated within the grounds of the California Men's Colony, the California National Guard's Camp San Luis Obispo, Cuesta College, and related public facilities. All improvements are within state or county-owned lands.

Document Description
The proposed project would upgrade the existing Men's Colony water distribution system; this system supplies domestic and fire service water to the state prison, the Camp, Questa College, the County Administrative yard, and related public facilities. The project will replace and/or up-size approximately 118,500 linear feet of the existing water distribution system. The project also includes installation and/or improvement of various appurtenant water distribution facilities such as pumps, on-line storage reservoirs, fire hydrants, and telemetric equipment. The project does not involve the extension of water service to new facilities not currently on this system; this is an infrastructure project to replace water delivery facilities that are over 50 years old and in urgent need of repair.
