Document Description
Smith River CSD is the lead agency under CEQA for this project. The Smith River CSD is pursuing grant funding utilizing Drinking Water State Revolving Funds to conduct a planning study for improvements to their drinking water infrastructure. The current water system was constructed in 1970 and numerous expansion projects have taken place over the years resulting in a doubling in the number of connections. In addition, the district has grown to be 6 miles long and to include four active wells, eight water tanks, and a number of pump stations. The district needs a comprehensive evaluation for the overall system including assessments of the condition, capacity, and remaining life of major system components that integrate the information from the many small projects that have been completed over the years.
