Document Description
San Joaquin field division plans to replace a flowmeter at the semi-tropic 2 turnaround along the California aqueduct State Water Project. To do this work, buried corroded conduit and wiring will need to be replaced. To reach the conduit and wires, a hydro vacuum truck will be used to dig a trench. The trench would be around 61.5 feet long, 2 feet deep, and at most, 2 feet wide. The trench would start at the pull box and go north for around 40 feet. Then it would turn west for around 16.5 feet. Lastly, it would turn back south for around 5 feet, ending at a concrete vault. A shorter alternate route would also start at the pull box and head north. However, it would turn west at around 35 feet and go straight into the concrete vault. The alternate route would require the use of hand tools to drill a hole into the concrete vault. Once the trench is dug and all conduit and wires are replaced, a backhoe would be used to fill and compact the trench. A dump truck would be used to bring in fill material. All vehicles, equipment, and materials would be staged on paved or graveled surfaces. All work would take place within the DWR right of way. The work is estimated to take one week to complete. This work is necessary to calculate the cost of water deliveries to the water contractor.
