Document Description
The proposed project will supply the Salton City area with groundwater from a more reliable source located approximately 16 miles to the north of the Riverside/Imperial County Line. The 30-inch diameter pipe will convey domestic water supplies from the Thermal area to the Imperial County service area including Salton City. The proposed route of the pipeline parallels Highway 86 in the west shoulder within the existing highway right-of-way (ROW). The 30-inch diameter pipe will connect to an existing 18-inch diameter line on the east side of the Highway 86 at Avenue 58 and cross to the west side of Highway 86. From Avenue 58 south to Avenue 62, the pipe will be aligned approximately 26 feet from the existing centerline within the highway ROW. Approaching Avenue 66, the proposed pipe will be located 35 feet from the centerline, which is 15 feet from the edge of asphalt and 15 feet from the ROW line. The pipe follows this alignment from Avenue 66 south to Avenue 82, a distance of approximately 8 miles. At Avenue 82, Highway 86 becomes a four-lane expressway, Highway 86S, and the highway ROW expands to 100 feet from the centerline. The proposed pipe will be located within the existing highway ROW approximately 15 feet from the edge of the ROW line from Avenue 82 south to Avenue 86 (Riverside/Imperial County Line).
