Rodeo Gulch Sewer and Pump Station Rehabilitation Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The proposed project involves rehabilitating two deteriorated sections of an existing sewer main (Rodeo Gulch trunkline), repair and rehabilitation of a steel trestle sewer pipe bridge, and installation of an auxiliary wet well at the existing Rodeo Pump Station. The existing sewer system has structural defects in pipes, joints, manholes and other connections caused by age and deterioration that need to be repaired. The steel trestle pipe bridge has damaged frame members that require replacement and deteriorated paint that needs to be rehabilitated to prevent further damage to the structure. The work will be implemented as three separate construction projects: The Upper Rodeo Gulch Trunkline Rehabilitation will use a trenchless pipe lining method (cured-in-place pipe) to rehabilitate the existing underground pipe with minimal surface disturbance, and repair/repaint the existing pipe bridge. Some small segments of pipe will require replacement through conventional (open cut) trenching. The Lower Rodeo Gulch Trunkline Replacement will replace existing pipe using conventional trenching within paved roads and other previously disturbed areas, and the Rodeo Pump Station Capacity Upgrade will install a wet well within a paved area at the existing pump station.
