NOD - Notice of Determination
Document Description
The proposed Project includes annexation of 11,000 acres into the District boundary. To accomplish the annexation, the District, on behalf of the proposed annexed landowners, would apply to the Glenn LAFCO. The proposed Project would also include infrastructure needed to deliver water to the newly annexed parcels. The infrastructure components would include seven (7) turnouts (with pumps) on the TCC; twenty-four (24) new farm turnout locations; two (2) new pump stations (approximate capacity of 30 cubic-feet-per-second) added to existing pipelines; and approximately eight (8) miles of new pipeline. Designed facility capacities are based on projected peak demands and available topographical information. The proposed infrastructure would be constructed on either newly annexed private landowners’ property, existing District landowners’ property, Reclamation land adjacent to the TCC, on other private lands, and adjacent to and across several Glenn County roads. Spoils from infrastructure excavations would be managed on site and used as pipe backfill. No spoil material will be exported. The pipeline diameter would range from eight (8) to thirty (30) inches. Steel casing pipe may be used in areas where the exposed pipe passes through the TCC bank. Steel casing pipe diameter would be thirty (30) inches or smaller. The maximum depth of ground disturbance for pipelines and farm turnouts would be nine (9) feet, while the booster pump stations would have a maximum depth of eighteen (18) feet. Each construction area would contain temporary staging areas for construction equipment lay-down. Annexed lands will be considered Class 2 District users with the existing Class 1 District users taking precedence with respect to CVP District contracted water supplies.
