Document Description
The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) proposes to repair a section of its patrol road along the San Diego Pipeline Nos. 4 and 5 within the Santa Margarita Ecological Reserve. The road, which is maintained by Metropolitan, is used by Metropolitan to access structures along the two pipelines and by Reserve staff to access monitoring equipment and other areas within the Reserve. The patrol road frequently erodes as a result of storm events, becoming impassable and requiring frequent repair. Metropolitan proposes to grade, fill, and install concrete and cement soil along a stretch of the existing patrol road north of the Santa Margarita River that is frequently damaged. Metropolitan will lay concrete along an approximately 340-foot stretch of road and will install cement treated base rock along an approximately 1,200-foot stretch of road. Metropolitan will also lay additional concrete on an already concreted portion of the patrol road to even out the road next to an existing aboveground structure. The project is adjacent to, but outside of the jurisdictional area of the Santa Margarita River.
