Document Description
The Los Osos Community Services District (LOCSD), the project applicant, proposes the construction and operation of an intertie to the Chorro Valley Pipeline to provide an alternative source of potable for the LOCSD. The project would involve the construction of an intertie to the Chorro Valley Pipeline and the installation of an approximately 2.5-mile pipeline. The proposed intertie would consist of a vault with piping, meter, valves, and may also consist of a booster pump station that would facilitate a controlled and metered flow of potable water to the LOCSD. It is anticipated that state water could provide up to 200 acre-feet per year (AFY) of water supply.
