- San Juan Capistrano Ortega Highway Pipeline Project
- The proposed project consists of the construction of approximately 5,287 linear feet of 12-inch diameter potable water main pipeline within the Ortega Highway right-of-way. The pipeline would be installed during the proposed widening of the Ortega Highway, currently under consideration by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). By installing the pipeline during Caltrans' construction period, the City would minimize direct impacts of the project and avoid the need to disrupt the street in the future. The project would increase the reliability and quality of service within the existing water distribution system to adequately serve existing users, and to meet increasing fire safety demands. The pipeline would be constructed within the paved roadway at depths ranging from approximately 4 to 5 feet below the existing surface. The project is anticipated to include trenching excavation, pipeline installation, backfilling, compacting, and soil replacement all within the construction zone of the Caltrans road widening project.
