Orange Tank Replacement Site Acquisition Feasibility Analysis
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
Eastern Municipal Water District's (District) existing Orange Tank, which supplies potable water in the Orange pressure zone, is nearing the end of its useful life. The Orange Tank was constructed in 1965 and has a capacity of 0.15 million gallons (MG). The existing tank is located at the intersection of Carousel Road and Salter Road in the City of Perris. Several parcels in the immediate vicinity of the existing tank have been identified as possible locations to construct a new potable water tank to replace the existing Orange Tank. In order to prepare the District to make a decision to purchase a parcel, a feasibility analysis of the proposed site(s) will be required. The analysis will provide a general assessment of site elevation suitable for the proposed tank, a grading concept, earth work quantities, drainage, salvage ability of the existing tank design, rights-of-way/easements, pipeline routing, constructability, constraints, estimated schedule and approximate costs. In conjunction with the feasibility analysis, other supplement services will include a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment, limited geotechnical report and limited topographical survey for the preferred parcel(s).
