Document Description
YLWD constructed a new, large water treatment plant known as Plant 1 or PFAS (Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances) Water Treatment Plant at its headquarters, which is currently in service. Due to the high volume of water feeding into and exiting the plant, YLWD can no longer use its existing pipeline in Richfield Road to transport water both to and from the area of the plant. Therefore, YLWD proposes to construct a new water pipeline (new waterline) to transmit water to loop the water system and provide water system redundancy. The proposed pipeline would deliver water to the consumers south of Orangethorpe Avenue, leaving the Richfield Road pipeline to transport water to Highland Reservoir only in the other direction. A new 12-inch pipeline would be constructed to connect from the terminus of Nancita Circle in the south to a point in Highland Avenue to the north. The new pipeline would be constructed in two segments that would connect via an existing 10-inch pipeline.
