Pacific Gas & Electric Company (PG&E) Gas Transmission Pipeline L400 and L401 Salt Creek Crossing Replacement Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
As a long-term remedy to the frequent scouring and subsequent exposure of the existing L400 and L401 gas pipelines within Salt Creek, PG&E proposes to remove up to 680 linear feet of each pipeline centered on where they cross the creek. Approximately 750 linear feet of new 36-inch diameter pipe for L400 and 780 linear feet of 42-inch diameter pipe for L401 will be installed crossing Salt Creek approximately 100 feet east of the existing pipelines. The new L400 and L401 pipelines will be replaced with the same diameter pipe as the existing and will be spaced approximately 30 feet apart. Both pipelines will be installed to a depth of approximately 20 feet below the creek channel bed and 36 feet below the ground surface adjacent to the creek banks.
