Dry Canyon Security Gate Replacement
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
LADWP proposes to replace the existing manual gates at the LADWP Dry Canyon facility entrances with two automatic gates. The existing perimeter chain-link fence along the southern property line will be replaced with a more secure seven-foot-tall metal picket fence. To support the proposed automatic gates and the associated badge readers, an electrical conduit will be trenched and run from the eastern gate to the western gate. The trench will be 3 feet wide, up to 6 feet deep, and approximately 70 feet long. Once the conduits are placed, they will be encased in concrete and the trench will be backfilled with excavated soil. Construction is predicted to start in spring 2023, and take approximately 30 days to complete.
