Document Description
The purpose of this Agreement is to develop non-invasive and cost-effective methodologies to evaluate the structural integrity of Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta (Delta) levees. Natural gas infrastructure in the Delta is a critical component of the state's natural gas system and icnludes 242 miles of pipelines as well as major storage facilities. The project will compile existing information on geohazards, levee conditions and natural gas infrastructure into a database. This information will be used to identify areas of high risk to natural gas infrastructure in the Delta and will also be used to select sites for testing a minimum of four geophysical methods to assess levee integrity. The results from this research will benefit the natural gas ratepayers by increasing safety, lower costs and resilience.
