The District has an existing 8-inch water pipeline located within City of Solana Beach's right-of-way along Glencrest Road. The City of Solana Beach has informed the District that the City is currently designing improvements to Glencrest Road that include lowering the road elevation for a distance of approximately 200 feet in the vicinity of the District's pipeline. In order to accommodate the new road elevation, the District will need to lower a segment of the pipeline and replace tow potable water services and a fire hydrant. The District's pipeline is old but does not have any history of failure or capacity problems. Therefore, it was not planned to be replaced in the near future. However, in order to accommodate the City's construction schedule, the District's pipeline would need to be lowered in Fiscal Year 2018. Therefore, this project includes the design and construction of the pipeline improvements required to accommodate the new roadway elevation.
There will be no operating impacts from the replacement of this pipeline; the maintenance and operating costs will remain the same.
