NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
A crane will be used to install a new oil-less, water lubricated, residential water pump on an existing pump pad at MP 122.59R. The Pump will be mounted to the pump pad with a steel mounting bracket and the entire pump installation will be contained by the existing concrete headwall structure. A 4-inch diameter suction pipe will be attached to the new pump. Four 12-inch high by 12-inch deep by 48-inch wide wood blocks, spaced 10 feet apart, will be placed along the Aqueduct liner. The 4-inch pipe will be strapped and bolted to the blocks so the pipe can extend from the pump, down the Aqueduct liner, to the water. Note: Refer to NOE for full Description of Nature, Purpose, and Beneficiaries of Project.
