Document Description
The proposed project would construct and operate a water transmission pipeline and booster pump station to remedy distribution demands identified as part of the Calaveras County Water District's (CCWD) Copper Cove Water System Master Plan Update. The transmission line would convey water from the current water treatment plant (WTP) on Little John Road to the two 500,000-gallon tanks at the top of a hill on Charm Stone Way. The proposed 20-inch diameter water transmission line would be approximately 12,000 feet in overall length with about half the length of pipeline crossing through privately-owned Oak studded grasslands. The remaining half of the pipeline and booster pump station would be placed within existing streets, public right-of-ways, and utility easements. The project is intended to replace and upgrade an existing 30-year old 10-inch diameter water transmission line and construct a new booster pump station as well as increase the capacity of these water transmission and pumping facilities.
