Document Description
The CA Department of Public Health (Department) is a responsible agency for this project. The Department's Public Water System Drought Emergency Funding Program is providing state funds for the project. Santa Barbara Water Department proposes to remove approximately 11 feet of silt (500 cubic yards) which is currently on top of the lowest usable intake gate, Gate 5, of the Lake Cachuma intake structure. Once the silt is removed all gates will be repaired including gate guides and valve stems. Then an appendage will be attached to Gate 5 which allows for temporary piping to be connected. The temporary piping consists of two 20-inch HDPE pipelines, each approximately 3,500 feet long. The pipelines will convey water from a barge floating on the lake which consists of 7 pumps. Temporary power lines will be installed from the nearest utility power pole in addition to a standby/emergency generator which will be used to power the pumps on the barge.
