Document Description
Western Municipal Water District proposes a 2,500 linear foot pipeline segment, consisting of 54-inch diameter potable water conveyance pipeline. The pipeline alignment would occur within the existing Van Buren Boulevard right-of-way. A small portion of the alignment would extend to the west into the Van Buren Boulevard/Doolittle Avenue intersection, at the alignment's northern terminus. The proposed alignment would also extend slightly to the east, into the intersection of Van Buren Boulevard and Jackson Street. Jack/bore pits and construction staging/parking areas would occur in existing disturbed/developed areas outside of existing street rights of way.
