Existing plastic waterlines will be converted to PVC lines throughout the district compound, including housing areas, Discovery Center, nature walk, and behind offices. A more durable system will reduce maintenance requirements and prolong the irrigation system. A trencher and hand tools (digging bards, shovels, etc.) will be used to dig trenches for the PVC lines. In total, 12,000' of PVC will be placed in a 1' wide by 3' deep trench. Under sidewalks, soil may need to be flushed and/or dug out. PVC will be anchored in place to reduce movement. Near the bathroom (100 building), PVC will be tunneled to avoid going under the sidewalk. Additionally, a new water system will be installed behind the amphitheater and the resources office.
Attempts will be made to avoid vegetation and roots. At the discretion of the district archaeologist, a cultural monitor will be present for all ground disturbance, including digging and moving soil. Future maintenance of the waterline is anticipated, such as fixing leaks and replacing sections of PVC. Measures to be implemented to avoid impact may be obtained by submitting a request to the Environmental Coordinator.
