Document Description
The Project will consist of a new 24 to 36-inch diameter vitrified clay pipe (VCP) underground sewer main that runs from north to south, begins by connecting to the existing sewer lines at the lift station within the Meridian Business Park. The alignment then extends southerly under Van Buren Boulevard/Interstate 215. Interchange directly to the WMWD treatment plant approximately 8,600 linear foot (1.6 miles) from the beginning, paralleling the Interstate 215 freeway and the Riverside County Transportation Commission (RCTC) and Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe (AT & SF) railroad line. The sewer main will be installed in approximate 100 linear foot segments that will be backfilled and returned to existing conditions after the pipe is installed and inspected. Upon completion of the sewer main, the existing lift station would be removed by demolition. Additionally, the installation of the new sewer line will allow the existing sewer line located on Riverside National Cemetery propriety to ultimately be abandoned. The limits of construction along the sewer line alignment will be 20-feet on either side of the centerline for a total width of 40-feet.
