Document Description
Plains is proposing to replace the existing Line 901 and 903 pipeline system with a small diameter and smaller capacity un-insulated steel pipeline, herein after referred to as Lines 901R and 903R. As part of the proposed project Plains would install, operate and maintain Lines 901R and 903R, forty pipeline control valves, update equipment at three existing pump stations, expand and upgrade the existing Sisquoc Pump Station, construct a new pump station in the Cuyama Valley region of SLO County; and update and install various pipeline-related ancillary equipment including but not limited to: pipeline location markers, cathodic protection, fiber optic lines, supervisory control and data acquisition systems, remote communication equipment, emergency battery systems, diesel acquisition back-up generators, and/or solar panels. Although removal of the existing pipeline is not proposed at this time, portions of the line may be removed where technically feasible and required by agreement with landowners and/or project conditions. Therefore, impacts associated with pipeline removal would also be addressed and analyzed.
