Document Description
B&B Communications will excavate, inspect, test, and possibly replace the existing DWR communication cable splice case at MP 71.27L. About 3 cubic yards will be excavated from an approx. 5-foot-wide by 5-foot-long by 3-foot-deep area. Once the area is excavated, the cable splice case will be inspected for corrosion and the cable will be tested. The existing splice case will be removed and a new one will be installed using hand tools. If the cable needs to be replaced, up to 330 feet upstream and downstream of the splice case will be excavated to remove and replace the cable. Once work is complete, the excavated area will be backfilled and compacted and the area will recontoured to its original conditions.
