Document Description
The Noble Gulch Sewer Improvement Project is a component of the FY07-08 Sewer Improvements Project for the Santa Cruz County Sanitation District. The Noble Gulch Project involves replacement of approximately 6,600 linear feet of 12-inch sewer pipeline between Capitola Avenue and Soquel Drive in Capitola, CA. Presently, the pipeline is located along the bottom of the gulch in a riparian corridor. The proposed project would realign the sewer pipeline in public streets. The project would replace aging sewer infrastructure, improve efficiency of the sewer network, and relocate a pipeline out of potentially environmentally-sensitive areas.
