Document Description
The project will intertie the Hopland Public Utility District water works with the Hopland Band of Pomo Indians (Tribe) existing water lines and water system. The construction that is envisioned by this agreement will consist of a pipe line that will connect to HPUD's existing eastern most extension of its pipeline in State Highway 175. The pipeline will then be extended along highway 175 to the eastern most boundary of the district it will then extend in a publically owned easement or right of way for a short distance where it will exit the HPUD boundary. The Tribe then will extend the pipeline from the boundary to the Tribe's existing pipeline. The entire length of the extension is approximately 700 feet from the existing terminus of the HPUD pipeline to the existing terminus of the Tribe's pipeline. The pipeline that is to be constructed inside the District's boundary will become the property of HPUD. The pipeline that is constructed outside the District's boundary will remain the property of the Tribe. At the completion of the proposed construction the trucking of water will end the Tribe will receive its wheeled federally reserved water right through the pipelines discussed above. A very small portion of the pipeline will be constructed outside of the Highway 175 right of way and extending from that right of way to the HPUD boundary. That short length of line is deminimus in length and its construction will have no significant or discernable effect on the environment.
