Document Title
Arana Sewer Trunk Line Replacement Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Open urban space, paved roadways in residential areas, and undeveloped areas in commercial areas.

Document Description
The project involves replacement of approximately 2,900 linear feet of aging and deteriorated existing sewer trunk line and associated manholes. The project consists of 13 sewer line segments, which occur in between existing manholes. These segments are part of the trunk line that conveys wastewater to the City of Santa Cruz wastewater treatment plant. The replacement pipes would be installed using trenchless methods (pipe-bursting) where possible and conventional (open cut) trenching methods with excavators and loaders where trenchless methods cannot be used. Installation of Segment 6 under Highway 1 will utilize either a bore-and-jack technique or micro-tunneling. Segments 8A and 12 under Arana Gulch Creek will be replaced using pipe-bursting methods to avoid impacts to the perennial creek.
