Document Title
Piedmont Temporary Regulator Pressure Recovery Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed Project is to be operated automatically based on available pressure and flow (customer demand). Existing water transfer will not be disrupted, but rather through the proposed project or through the existing conduit (existing pressure reducing valve (PRV)). The project is composed of compatible intake and discharge pipes, a single turbine generating unit, control valves and sensors and meter. The controlling device will be housed in an appropriate electrical box. The project will be on a 15x7 ft concrete slab roughly 10 ft (center of pipe to center of pipe) from the existing conduit. There will be a 13x5x5 ft fiberglass enclosure housing the entire project with appropriate sound protection, landscaping, and aesthetics suitable for the site use. Energy will be used to offset energy used at this station by EBMUD. IT is contained in the existing vault area where there is a functioning PRV.
