Document Description
The Project involves installing a 38,700-foot pipeline to convey recycled water from the City of Turlock's Harding Drain Outfall Site to Modesto's Jennings Treatment Plant. At the Jennings Treatment Plant the pipeline will connect with the Modesto Segment of the North Valley Regional Recycled Water Program, which will convey the recycled water to the Delta Mendota Canal. The recycled water will be provided to the Del Puerto Water District service area and Central Valley Improvement Act-designated wildlife refuges. The pipeline will be installed using a combination of open-cut (trench) and trenchless (microtunneling) methods.

Swainson's hawk is listed as threatened under the California Endangered Species Act.
