Document Description
Eastern Municipal Water District (District) proposes to implement the Murrieta Road Transmission Pipeline Project (proposed Project) to construct and operate a 36- to 42-inch-diameter water transmission line from the Perris II Desalter Complex (Desalter) in the City of Menifee approximately 1.3 3 miles south, mostly in the Murrieta Road right-of-way, to La Piedra Road, where the proposed pipeline will connect to an existing 36-inch diameter water main in La Piedra Road about 250 feet east of its intersection with Murrieta Road. The proposed Project will provide capacity to transmit potable water from the Desalter to the existing main in La Piedra Road. The proposed project site is located west of Interstate 215 and east oflnterstate 15 in the City of Menifee, Riverside County. The proposed Project site would be within the public right-of-way except for two site segments: one on the District Sun City Regional Water Reclamation Facility property at the north end of the site; and a second possible segment along the east side of Murrieta Road extending 250 feet north from La Piedra Road.
