Document Description
The Project consists of the installation of approximately 30,500 linear feet of 8-inch to 20-inch diameter water pipelines to replace old and leaking pipelines at seventeen (17) locations throughout the District including crossings of the Friant Kern Canal and Lewis Creek. The District is continuously repairing the leaking pipelines that are installed in and/or adjacent to County roads. All of the proposed Project features (pipelines, valves, and connections) will be located underground or will utilize existing bridge crossings. The Project also includes reconneciton of existing fire hydrants. The pipeline will be located in the public right-of-way. The proposed alignments will cross the Friant Kern Canal, Lewis Creek and the San Joaquin Valley Railroad at a few locations. Construction activities include excavation, pipe installation, backfill and surface restoration. Pipelines will cross the San Joaquin Valley Railroad by boring and Lewis Creek by trenching. The bore pits will be excavated, the bore will be accomplished, the pit will be backfilled and the surface restored. The footprint of the bore and jacking pit is estimated to be less than 20 feet wide and 40 feet long. The receiving pit will be of smaller dimensions. Pipeline crossings at the Friant Kern Canal will utilize existing or new pipeline crossing support systems attached to existing bridges.
