The Proposed Project generally consists of domestic and public safety water infrastructure improvements to the City of Waterford's water systems, in accordance with state water and fire codes, including improvements within the Community of Hickman. The City of Waterford is the water purveyor for the Community of Hickman. All work associated with the Proposed Project will occur within existing right-of way. In addition, while the Proposed Project consists of replacing some existing water lines with larger diameter water lines, this component of the Proposed Project is solely being done to address deficient fire suppression flows within the existing water system. The Proposed Project does not propose nor allow for the expansion of water service beyond the existing Waterford/Hickman service areas, as previously approved by the City of Waterford and the Community of Hickman.
The Proposed Project is generally located within the City of Waterford, the County of Stanislaus, and the Community of Hickman. The Proposed Project is specifically located along Yosemite Boulevard (SR 132), between G Street and the northwestern point of the River Pointe Subdivision, and at the River Pointe water treatment facility. With the jurisdiction of Stanislaus County, the Proposed Project is located on Hickman Road, crossing the Hickman Road Bridge into the Community of Hickman. Within the Community of Hickman, the Proposed Project is located on Lake Road (between Hickman Road and I Street), I Street (between Lake Road and 4th Street), 4th Street (between I Street and Montpelier Road), and Montpelier Road (between Lake Road and 6th Street), and at the Hickman well sites
