Document Description
The Yucaipa Valley Water District proposes the expansion of the recycled water system in the North Bench area of the City of Yucaipa, San Bernardino County, California. The expansion includes the construction of four recycled water reservoirs, four booster stations, and approximately 3.4 miles of pipeline. The first (westernmost) booster station (B-14.1) would be located at the YVRWFF. The second booster station (B-16.2) and first reservoir (R-16.2) would be located north of Oak Glen Road approximately 1 mile east of the YVRWFF adjacent to an existing reservoir. The third booster station (B-17.2) and second reservoir (R-17.2) would be located at the eastern end of Lan Franc Road, south of Oak Glen Road. The fourth booster station (B-18.2) and third reservoir (R-18.2) would be located south of Oak Glen Road within undisturbed land. The fourth (easternmost) reservoir (R-20.1) would be constructed south of Oak Glen Road adjacent to an existing reservoir approximately 2 miles east of the first reservoir. A new 3.4-mile pipeline would be constructed in the existing roadway along Oak Glen Road with shorter segments located within the right-of-way (ROW) along James Birch Road, Chagall Road, Martell Avenue, and Lan Franc Road to connect to the B-16.2/R-16.2 and B-17.2/R-17.2 booster station/reservoir sites. This Project will extend the system in the North Bench area of the City of Yucaipa and the unincorporated Oak Glen community to accommodate existing and planned development which will utilize recycled water on all landscaped areas. The Project would result in approximately 4.0 acres of disturbance (2.4 acres of pipeline and 1.6 acres of other facilities).
