Monte Cristo Avenue Water Main Replacement
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Replace approximately 1,000 linear feet of 2.5-inch and 1-inch water main and appurtances in Monte Cristo Avenue with 6-inch main and extend the main approximately 110 linear feet at the north end and approximately 40 feet at the south end to intertie with the existing 6-inch main in Highway 116 to complete a loop. The existing main serves approximately 16 customers. The replacement main and new loop main will ensure better service pressures in the service area, reduce water losses and eliminate an existing creek crossing. All trenching occurs in roadways. It is anticipated that trenchless technologies will be used to cross Highway 116. Road surfaces will be restored consistent with encroachment permits.
