Crystal Springs / San Andreas Transmission Upgrade Project
Document Type
NOD - Notice of Determination

Document Description
The Operator proposes to upgrade Upper and Lower Crystal Springs and San Andreas Reservoir infrastructure. Project upgrades include the following for one or all of the reservoirs: new outlet structures and dam culverts; pipeline repair and replacement; a new pump station with related facilities, valves, and piping; and pipeline access improvements. Specifically, the proposed Project would (1) improve the seismic reliability of the Crystal Springs/San Andreas Transmission System (CS/SA Transmission System) by reducing facility vulnerability to earthquake-related damage to improve the likelihood of its continued operation following a seismic event; (2) ensure that the CS/SA Transmission System provides transmission flexibility to the regional water system in a manner that will enable the SFPUC to meet its delivery reliability goals in the event of an emergency or during major water system maintenance; (3) ensure delivery reliability of the CS/SA Transmission System by providing a means to access and repair the CS/SA Transmission facilities; (4) meet California Division of Dam Safety of Dams (DSOD) requirements for dam facilities in an emergency drawdown scenario. The California Department of Fish and Game (DFG) is executing a Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement Number 1600-2009-0425-3 pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the project Applicant, Ed Harrington or Michael Carlin/San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.
