Document Description
The Mission Hills Pressure Zone Infrastructure Improvement Project consists of constructing three 6.5 million gallon potable water reservoirs located on a 10 acre site, on a portion of APN 648-030-016 (a 171.02 acre parcel owned by the US Bureau of Land Management) at the northeast corner of Rio Del Sol Road and Vista Chino Drive in the unincorporated community of Thousand Palms, Riverside County. A water pipeline will be constructed from the reservoir site south along Rio Del Sol Road to Varner Road, west to a private easement, south across I-10 and the Union Pacific Railroad, along a small section of Ramon Rd to Bob Hope Dr, then south to an existing 18-in pipeline just south of Dinah Shore Dr. The pipeline will be placed within the rights of way of all roadways and easements listed above. Where the pipeline passes under I-10 and the UPRR tracks, pipeline installation will be accomplished using the "jack and bore" method. Immediately south of I-10, the pipeline will also be jack and bored beneath an approximate 100 ft wide strip of tribal land that is part of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians reservation. The total pipeline length will be approximately 22,000 lf and temporarily disturb approximately 6.54 acres of lands/right of way along the pipeline alignments, based on an average width of 15 ft caused by construction vehicles, equipment, soil storage piles and trenches along the pipeline alignments.
