Crimson Pipeline LP has requested encroachment permission in the Department of Water Resources right-of-way for their contractor, National Corrosion, to install cathodic protection equipment at an existing voltage reading test station located above an oil pipeline. National Corrosion will excavate an area up to 10-feet long by 10-feet wide and 3.5-feet deep to install an 8-foot long by 8-foot wide grounding mat and an 18-inch long by 4-inch wide by 6-inch diameter magnesium anode. The grounding mat will be placed four inches below the ground surface, and the anode will be three feet below the grounding mat; the anode will be wired to the grounding mat. A pedestal enclosure, encasing a direct current decoupler, will be installed above ground next to the test station. Once the cathodic protection equipment is installed, the excavated area will be backfilled and compacted to the original grade and a 3-inch layer of gravel will be added to the test station area within the existing guard rail. Vehicles and equipment will access the site from an existing dirt road and will stage on a 100-foot long by 10-foot wide area adjacent to and west of the work site. The Department of Water Resources will issue an encroachment permit for this work.
