Walnut Grove Emergency Force Main Repairs

NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
CSD-1 discovered a break in the sewer line crossing the Sacramento River in the town of Walnut Grove. The sewer line is a 6-inch diameter force main which transports approximately 60,000 gallons per day of sewage from the west to the east side of the Sacramento River. The line break is on the bottom of the river near the east side of the river near the levee. It is estimated that 200,000 gallons of raw wastewater spilled into the Sacramento River over a 3-day period. CSD-1 will be performing a temporary repair to a broken sewer pipe within the Sacramento river. A more modern and permanent solution will be investigated. Any future project will be subject to further CEQA review.
