Document Description
The State Water Resources Control Board, as the responsible agency, will be issuing a water supply permit. The Santa Margarita Water District completed construction of a water quality tank on February 15, 2016 and a 20 foot wide access road to the tank from Ranch Road on August 30, 2016. A 3 million gallon tank was constructed on September 9, 2016. The tank, approximately 40 feet in height, was built with a tank leak detection system and electrical power by a photovoltaic system, with underground facilities to allow for potential connection to a nearby commercial power system in the future. A transmission pipeline from the tank was also constructed on September 9, 2016. The pipeline is 11,500 feet long and consists of a 24 inch cement-motor-lined and coated steel pipe. The piping run beneath access road for most of the length, with 4,800 feet along a sewer line right away from the road and 1,400 feet in the open space area between the road and the tanks.
