Document Description
OCSD is a multi-service special district providing fire protection, sewer collection and water services, solid waste, parks and recreation, and street lighting to residents and businesses in the communities of Oceano and Halcyon in San Luis Obispo County, California. Several water mains in the existing OCSD system are approaching the end of their useful life expectancy. To address pipeline deficiencies, OCSD intends to install new pipeline main sections, replace existing pipeline main sections with upsized pipes, replace pipeline dead-ends with loops, and install an emergency intertie with the City of Arroyo Grande system. Project construction would occur over approximately one year and would utilize a combination of open-cut trenching and trenchless jack-and-bore construction techniques to install and replace pipeline segments. Project construction phases would include site preparation, pipeline installation (open-cut trenching or jack-and-bore), and paving/ground restoration. The project would result in approximately 76,150 square feet, or approximately 1.75 acres, of total ground disturbance, and would involve a typical maximum excavation depth of up to five feet. The emergency intertie between the OCSD system and the City of Arroyo Grande system would be located on Segment 2-10 along Halcyon Road. This intertie would be installed for emergency purposes only and would not alter the water supply capacity of either system. Existing operation and maintenance activities associated with OCSD’s water system would be substantially reduced once all CIP segments are implemented.
