Southern California Gas Company (SoCalGas)

Document Description
The Project will consist of repairs/replacement along the existing 30-inch-diameter natural gas pipeline corridor (Line 235). All repair and replacement locations will be located within the existing 50-foot right-of-way, which extends approximately 25 feet on both sides of the pipeline centerline. Rock riprap or other structures will not be used within or near drainage features. In addition, water is not anticipated to require diversion because the drainage are expected to be dry during construction. The purpose of the amendment request is to allow Southern California Gas Company to repair a leak identified in the pipeline (Line 235), which is related to the prior repairs made and waterway impacts covered by the subject Agreement. After completion of original repairs and re-pressurization of the pipeline, a leak was identified, which will impact 75 square feet of an additional jurisdictional waterway that was not included in the initial notification.
