Document Description
The proposed project includes a diversion structure on Little Butte Creek above Magalia Reservoir and a pipeline to deliver gravity fed water to the PID water treatment plant. The proposed diversion structure will be located approximately 100 feet upstream of the existing measuring flume on Little Butte Creek. The exact location of the diversion structure will be field determined based on the topography and a geologic investigation of the site. A 36-inch high-density polyethelene (HDPE) low-pressure underground pipeline will extend from the diversion structure to the water treatment plant for distance of approximately 7,800 feet along the eastern shore of Magalia Reservoir.
