Document Description
The proposed project involves the construction and replacement of a suite of 14 wells: 9 proposed new wells, and 5 replacement wells. Additionally, conveyance pipes would be installed to connect these wells. Construction activities would include excavation and trenching to install the wells, and approximately 11.9 miles of conveyance pipe. The total area of disturbance would be approximately 10. 7 acres. Construction activities would begin in the fall of 2020 and be completed within 11 months. Staging areas for the construction equipment and materials would be adjacent to the Recovery Project area on previously disturbed land. The water pipelines will be connected to the District's existing turnout at the California Aqueduct at BV8, which can be used to either input water to, or withdraw water from, the Aqueduct.
