Project Upper Llagas Creek Flood Protection Project Relocation Plan
Review Period Monday, March 20, 2017 to Tuesday, April 18, 2017
Documents
Description

As part of the water district’s Safe, Clean Water & Natural Flood Protection Program approved by the voters in November 2012, the Upper Llagas Creek Flood Protection Project, located in San Martin and the cities of Morgan Hill and Gilroy, will provide flood protection to communities along the East Little Llagas Creek, West Little Llagas Creek and Llagas Creek in San Martin and Morgan Hill. In addition, the project design is being updated to protect homes, businesses and acres of agricultural land to preserve and enhance the creek's habitat, fish and wildlife.

The project extends approximately 13 miles from about Buena Vista Avenue to just beyond Llagas Road. The project will provide 100-year level of flood protection in the urban areas of Morgan Hill, as well as an approximate 10-year level of flood protection and no induced flooding in the agricultural areas of Gilroy and Morgan Hill.

Project Main and Madrone Pipeline Restoration Project Initial Study/Mitigated Negative Declaration
Review Period Wednesday, March 1, 2017 to Friday, March 31, 2017
Documents
Description

The proposed project includes the replacement of the Main Avenue and Madrone Pipelines outside the City of Morgan Hill with larger pipelines to restore their full operational capacity and to convey adequate flows to meet future sub-basin groundwater recharge requirements in the Llagas groundwater subbasin. The proposed project would be implemented along three major segments as described below

  • Segment 1 (Main Avenue Pipeline): 2,800 linear feet of 16-inch diameter pipe from the Anderson Reservoir outlet to the Cochrane Road and Half Road intersection will be replaced with 36-inch pipe
  • Segment 2 (Main Avenue Pipeline): 4,860 linear feet of 16-inch, 18-inch, and 24-inch diameter pipe from the Cochrane Road and Half Road intersection to the Main Avenue Percolation Ponds will be replaced with 30-inch pipe.
  • Segment 3 (Madrone Pipeline): 6,300 linear feet of 24-inch diameter and 30-inch diameter pipe from the Cochrane Road and Half Road intersection to the Madrone Channel will be replaced with 30-inch pipe.

In addition, underground utility vaults would be constructed at the end of the pipelines; the existing discharge pipes at the Main Avenue ponds and the Madrone Channel would be upgraded to include an energy dissipater; and an existing chemical feed station on Cochrane Road would be demolished and reconstructed north of Main Avenue near the Main Avenue turnout. The chemical feed station would be approximately 299 square feet. The proposed project would include restoring the roads once construction activities are complete.

Description

The Santa Clara Valley Water District (District) proposes to design and construct the Coyote Warehouse Project (the Project) on a parcel solely owned by the District that is adjacent to a parcel owned by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), which includes the Coyote Pumping Plant. The Project would consolidate and provide dedicated indoor and outdoor storage for District materials. The Project would involve the new construction of an approximately 32-foot-high and 21,600-square-foot metal framed warehouse building. The foundation and sidewalls of the warehouse would be constructed of an 8-foot-high concrete masonry unit, with rib panel metal siding extending upward from the masonry unit forming the building’s shell. The ribbed panel metal roof would cover the structure and be equipped with skylights.

Per Section 65962.5 of the Government Code, within the project vicinity there are no hazardous waste facilities subject to corrective action pursuant to Section 25187.5 of the Health and Safety Code or land designated as hazardous waste property.
