Document Description
Caltrans will widen Hwy 101 as part of the MSN Project, and portions of Caltrans highway improvements extend into parts of the right-of-way of the existing North Marin Water District Aqueduct, therefore Caltrans must relocate much of the Aqueduct as part of the Caltrans MSN Project. NMWD proposes to increase the size of its Aqueduct to improve energy efficiency and to take the Kastania Pump Station out of service. The project would increase the diameter of the Aqueduct between Kastania Road and Redwood Landfill Road from 30" to 36" or 42" to allow water in the Aqueduct to flow by gravity rather than pumping. The Project would reduce energy use and greenhouse gas emissions. The Project is being designed such that the Aqueduct's rate of flow capacity would not increase compared to existing conditions. 4.6 miles of pipeline would be upsized.
