Document Description
The Project proposes to construct a new water delivery system to serve the Saults Tract along with three abutting residences. The Project will install approximately 5,200 linear feet (LF) of 8-inch PVC water main, 1,200 LF of 12-inch PVC water main, and 20 LF of 6-inch PVC water main, plus valves, hydrants, approximately 39 individual water services and meters, and related appurtenances. It includes three points of connection to the City of Tulare water system: at the intersection Haven Street and West Sonora Avenue tying into the existing water main serving the Lone Oak Tract to the south; at the intersection Enterprise Street and West Alpine A avenue, tying into the end of the main serving the Lone Oak Tract; and at the intersection of West Inyo Avenue and Gemini Street within the Tulare city limits. These locations ensure both that there are two unique points of connection to the City system and that the consolidated system loops within the Saults Tract-Lone Oak Tract area. The new water system will be constructed four (4) feet below grade within existing rights-of-way. The City of Tulare will own and operate the system, providing service via an extraterritorial service agreement approved by the Tulare County Local Agency Fonnation Commission LAFCo). After the Project is complete, the Soults Mutual Water Company (SMWC) would likely be dissolved.
