Document Description
The project involves replacing a 1,350 foot section of 8-inch diameter high pressure natural gas transmission pipeline (Line 137B). Approximately 970 feet of 8-inch pipeline will be installed beneath the Freshwater Slough using the Horizontal Directional Drilling method. The remaining 380 feet will be installed in an excavated trench on the north side of the slough. The project will result in temporary impacts to seasonal wetlands. Impacts associated with temporary access routes, equipment staging, and excavation activities will result in up to 3 acres of temporary impacts to seasonal wetlands. The project is not expected to result in any permanent impacts to wetlands or other waters of the state.
