The Special Sanitation System Installation Agreement for APN 640-031-006 (Project) will provide sanitation sewer services to a newly developed private residence located at APN 640-031-006. The Project will install 1 manhole and approximately 122 linear feet of 8-inch Vitrified Clay Pipe (VCP) that will connect to a newly installed residential 4-inch sewer lateral. The VCP will be installed and extend an existing sewer line on Cholla Drive near the Joshua Road intersection. The 4-inch lateral will be installed both on APN 640-031-006 and on Cholla Drive, the lateral will connect to the newly installed 8-inch VCP sewer line. The new pipeline, lateral and manhole will be installed in a previously disturbed area and on the public street right-of-way. Excavation of the pipeline trench will be approximately 6.5 feet below ground surface to allow placement of the new VCP. The open trench installation on Cholla Drive will cause a temporary closure or controlled traffic during construction. The Project is anticipated to take place over the course of 10 to 15 days. The proposed project site is located in a residential neighborhood and is not within a conservation area of the Coachella Valley Multiple Species Habitat Conservation Plan (CVMSHCP).
