Bonita School Drinking Water Improvements Project

FIN - Final Document
Present Land Use
The portion of the project site located at Bonita Elementary School on APN 113-050-007 has a zoning designation of Agriculture-II (minimum lot size - 40 acres gross; AG-II-40) and a General Plan designation of Educational Facility. The portion of the project site located within existing public roadway ROW does not have a zoning or land use designation.
Document Description
The proposed project consists of the connection of the City’s water system to Bonita Elementary School via approximately 8,100 linear feet of a two-inch diameter service line from the planned terminus of the City’s water system near the northeast corner of the Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to Bonita Elementary School. (The City is currently in the design phase of extending City water service to the WWTP separately from the proposed project.) To meet peak demand, fire flow requirements, and irrigation demand, the project would also include repurposing the existing on-site 10,000-gallon storage tank and wells and potentially adding a hydropneumatic tank (up to approximately 1,000 gallons in capacity) with appurtenances such as an air compressor and additional above-grade piping and isolation valves. Minor piping modifications to the existing system would be required to disconnect the proposed potable, domestic supply from the existing system. In addition, the project would involve replacing lead service lines in the school’s Building K. Other improvements would include installation of blowoffs along the proposed pipeline and other appurtenances on Bonita Elementary School’s property.
