More forcemain replacement due

By
From page A3 | February 15, 2013 |

The El Dorado Irrigation District is planning to replace another section of its rotting Mother Lode forcemain.

The forecemain is nine miles of sewer line installed in 1979 that runs from the El Dorado Lift Station in the town of El Dorado to the main gravity line to the Deer Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The final environmental impact report has already been approved. An addendum to that report was approved Feb. 11 by the EID board as part of the consent calendar. The addendum includes items already considered in the final EIR and is therefore not required to be recirculated for comment.

“All changes to the project since its previous environmental review would either improve environmental conditions or improve human use of the system,” according to the addendum report.

This latest phase of the forcemain replacement program will include a 25-foot stream crossing that would be buried 4 feet under the stream bed. Total linear feet to be replaced with 20-inch PVC pipe are 3,200 linear feet.

The streambed trench will be backfilled the same day. The rest of the line will run along South Shingle Road, Lake View Drive and Oakmont Drive.

Part of the project includes a new route from the intersection of Sunset Lane and South Shingle Road 800 feet to Lakeview Drive and then 450 feet on Oakmont Drive.

This new route avoids crossing private property and connects it to four private lift stations on Oakmont Drive. The new route avoids any interruption to sewer service.

The project has yet to be put out to bid.
