Document Description
This Project proposes to upgrade the aging utilities infrastructure at Torrey Pines State Natural Reserve by installing replacement underground electric, sewer, domestic water, fire, and telephone utilities to serve this heavily used 1,300-acre park unit. The 5,726-foot (approximately 1.1 mile) alignment traverses both California Department of Parks and Recreation and City of San Diego property (via encroachment permit). Other project elements include the installation of approximately seven fire hydrants; two master lift stations; three below-ground lift stations; and three water fill stations.
