USFS Waterline Replacement, SR 3, PM 44.4 to 44.8
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The USFS is proposing to replace approximately 1,980 linear feet of existing water line occurring in the State Route 3 right-of-way between the Stoney Swim Area (PM 44.4) and Stoney Point Campground (PM 44.8). The existing 2.5-inch steel pipe is deteriorating and is no longer serviceable. The proposed 2.5-inch PVC replacement line would be installed along the south-bound lane adjacent to the existing line. To facilitate the highway crossing at PM 44.4 (near the swim area), the pipe would be placed in an 8-inch steel casing and installed using the cut and cover method. Once the replacement line is in service, the existing steel pipe would be abandoned in place. Caltrans would issue an encroachment permit to allow for the proposed work to occur within State right-of-way.
