Document Description
The proposed Project will have five major components: (1) installation of a new well located southwest of the Orosi Public Utility District (OPUD); (2) installation of a new 300,000-gallon storage tank located in the East Orosi Community Service District (EOCSD); (3) replacement of the old (existing) asbestos-containing concrete-covered distribution pipeline system located in the EOCSD; (4) connection of a new pipeline from the new well to existing pipelines in Orosi and then connecting a new pipeline to the new storage tank in East Orosi; and (5) consolidate the EOCSD drinking water customers and the Family Education Center into OPUD. The new production well will provide a compliant water supply in an amount sufficient to meet the needs of East Orosi, Culter-Orosi Joint Unified School District (COJUSD) and if desired, to provide a supplemental water source for OPUD and/or Culter Public Utility District. An annexation of the EOCSD service area into the OPUD may also be required. In addition, the proposed Project would include replacement of meter boxes within EOCSD, installation of metered service connections and new fire hydrants, and abandonment of both EOCSD wells. The proposed Project will provide clean, reliable, potable water to the residents of East Orosi. The proposed Project will allow the EOCSD to meet current water demand without increasing water demand or inducing growth in the community.
