RP-5 Recycled Water Pipeline Bottleneck Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The Project undertaking entails modifications to existing equipment and the excavation of an approximately 4.5-foot-wide trench to replace existing 14-inch-diameter pipelines with 24- to 30-inch-diameter pipelines in order to correct a “bottleneck” that causes high velocities and losses within the piping system and results in flow reduction in the receiving pipe. The replacement pipe will range between 24” and 30” diameter. This is to advise that the State Water Board made CEQA determinations and approved CWSRF financing on June 22, 2020 for the Project. This is to certify that the record of funding approval for the Project is available to the general public at the State Water Board, Division of Financial Assistance.
