Document Description
The proposed Project consists of the installation of two new pipeline connections between the Inland Feeder and the San Bernardino Valley Municipal Water District-Inland Feeder Interconnection Line 1 and Foothill Pump Station. Both new pipelines would have their own valves, valve vault structures, and surge tanks. Additionally, a large valve and vault structure will be installed on the Inland Feeder to control direction of water flow along Inland Feeder. The two pipelines are referred to as the supply connection and the discharge connection. The supply connection pipeline would be approximately 500 feet in length and send water from the Inland Feeder to the Foothill Pump Station for pumping. The discharge connection pipeline would be approximately 1,000 feet in length and send the pumped water back into the Inland Feeder, allowing it to have enough pressure to flow to its final destination of the Rialto Pipeline. Both the supply and discharge pipelines would be approximately 54-inches in diameter. Construction staging and storage would occur on the open dirt and gravel space within Metropolitan’s fee property in the Project Area. Operations and maintenance activities at the Inland Feeder and Foothill Pump Station, including the frequency of staff visits, maintenance, and shutdowns, would be similar to existing conditions once construction activities are completed. The Inland Feeder, Foothill Pump Station and all pipelines within the Project Area are unmanned structures.
