Document Description
The project proposes to build off of Phase I of the County Service Area (CSA) 34 Millerton Lake Pumps and Pipeline Maintenance Project and involves the construction of a parallel pipeline extending from the Winchell Cove submerged pump station. The new pipeline would branch from where the existing reduces from 14 to 12 inches or at the blind flange on either side of the platform, and would run parallel with the existing CSA 34 12-inch pipeline. From the pumps, the pipeline would extend for approximately 0.56 miles through the Millerton Lake bed to the Winchell Cove Marina. From the pumps, the pipeline would be installed within the County's existing CSA 34 pipeline easement, extending for approximately 0.5 miles south within the Winchell Cove road paved right-of-way, where it would transition through a public utility easement located within land held in federal trust for the Table Mountain Rancheria for approximately 1,600 feet in a southeasterly direction and terminate just north of Millerton Road. Where appropriate, cross connections with the existing pipeline would be installed to ensure even a level that will not cause excessive pipe wear, head loss, or water hammer in the system. Continued use of the existing pipeline could cause damage to the newly replaced pumps and result in large energy demands due to inefficient operation of the pumps and motors. The Project is needed to provide system flexibility, improve water supply reliability, provide more efficient operations in the delivery of raw water to the existing users within CSA 34. In addition, the Project would provide CSA 34 water users with a contingency plan in the event of an emergency and system malfunction. No changes to water rights or place of use would result from the Project.
