Document Description
The Ventura-Santa Barbara Counties Intertie Project (proposed project) involves the construction and operation of potable water infrastructure to connect the Casitas Municipal Water District (CMWD) and Carpinteria Valley Water District (CVWD) water transmission systems. The proposed project includes between approximately 7,600 to 8,160 linear feet (LF; 1.4 to 1.5 miles) of 16-inch-diameter potable water pipeline, two booster pump stations, and improvements to infrastructure at existing CMWD facilities. The pipeline would traverse the boundary between Ventura and Santa Barbara counties and act as a two-way intertie to allow the transfer of water between CMWD and CVWD, as necessary. The project site traverses State Routes 192 and 150, both of which are under the jurisdiction of the California Department of Transportation.
