Document Description
Approximately eight miles of new large diameter water transmission mains would be constructed within in two areas of the City limits - the Chestnut Avenue and Downtown areas. The Chestnut Avenue transmission main is located in the northeast portion of Fresno, where the City proposes to extend its water transmission capability to deliver water from the City's Northeast Surface Water Treatment Facility to the central portion of the City's service area. The Chestnut transmission main includes approximately 12,300 ft of 36-inch diameter and 5,700 ft of 30-inch diameter pipe (including one trenchless crossing). The City also proposes to construct a transmission main between the City's Well No. 172 and the Downtown area (downtown transmission main). The Downtown transmission main includes approximately 5,400 ft of 16-inch-diameter, 17,900 ft of 24-inch-diameter, and 900 ft of 30-inch-diameter pipe (including five trenchless crossings comprising approximately 970 ft.). When completed, the Downtown transmission main would provide water to fill an approved 3-million-gallon above-ground tank on H Street, southeast of Ventura Avenue; and when the tank is not filling, to supplement Downtown area demand.
