Document Description
The objective of the proposed project is to perform a seismic retrofit of the Penitencia Delivery Main, Penitencia Force Main, South Bay Aqueduct, and Finished Meter Vault to accommodate the creek and potentially extensive seismically-induced movements of the active Penitencia Creek Landslide over a 50-year design life. The proposed project would include: temporary shutdown of the Penitencia Water Treatment Plant, dewatering of the existing pipelines, installation of replacement compression pipelines, site restoration, and construction of ancillary facilities.
