Document Description
The existing Westland's Water District water connection and the DWR water fill station near the intersection of Marmon and Lassen Avenues will be impacted by the Caltrans work on Lassen Ave. Consequently, WWD will used the supply at the intersection of Marmon and Siskiyou Avenues. DWR will connect to it and will temporarily move its water filling station to about 450 feet east of the intersection of Arroyo Pasajero (AP) and Lassen Avenue, on the south side of the channel. DWR San Luis Field Division will contract for the construction of a temporary water pipeline connection the WWD water supply at Marmon and Siskiyou, to DWR's new water fill station location. SLFD will prepare for pipeline construction by removing vegetation and smoothing the ground surface by grading an approximately 1.13 mile long and up to 16-feet wide area, which will run west along Marmon Avenue and then at an angle towards Lassen and the AP channel. Once grading is complete, the contractor will install 10-inch diameter aluminum piping above ground between the water supply and fill station. The 10-inch pipe will connect to the WWD water supply, and will then cross approximately 45 feet now over Siskiyou Avenue and will continue on the north side of Marmon to follow the proposed alignment to the new DWR water filling station location. A 100-foot by 100-foot area will be graded and the fill station mechanism will be connected to the temporary pipeline. The pipeline will be located far enough to one side of the graded area to allow the area. The soil pushed up by grader will be smoothed out at the edges. No vehicles will be driven in the ungraded areas. San Luis Field Division will benefit.
