Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The proposed project would install a new effluent outfall pipe, rehabilitate the existing outfall pipe, and replace the Renzel Marsh pump. The new effluent outfall pipe would extend approx 2,402 lf, starting at the Water Quality Control Plant and ending immediately adjacent to the existing outfall pipe's discharge point. Installation of the new effluent outfall pipe would require open trenching and backfilling. The existing outfall pipe would be rehabilitated with flexible joint seals and no open excavation would be required as construction workers would enter the pipe to install these repairs. A new pump would be installed to replace the existing pump that conveys treated water the Renzel Marsh in order to improve efficiency.
