Recently, a comprehensive water loss audit identified leak detection as one of the components for minimizing real losses. Currently the district does leak detection on a case by case basis and does not have a district wide leak detection program. The project will evaluate roughly 41 miles of pipeline in the Quail Valley area, as shown on figure 1. The information gathered through this effort will assist in effectively formulating an ongoing leak detection program.
Implementation of the proposed project would include data collection and analytical testing activities hat will not result in a serious or major disturbance to an environmental resource. This project meets the criteria for information collection under the categorical exemption provided for within CEQA Guidelines §15306.
