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

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.

The Draft MND will be available for public review from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at the District Headquarters Building (5700 Almaden Expressway, San Jose, CA 95118) starting Wednesday, March 1, 2017 and ending on Friday, March 31, 2017.

Project John D. Morgan Park Monitoring Well Project 
Review Period  August 9, 2016, 6 p.m. 

  Engineer's Report 


The proposed work of improvement is described in the John D. Morgan Park Monitoring Well Project (Project) Engineer’s Report. The Engineer's Report is on file at the Clerk of the Board of Directors, 5700 Almaden Expressway, San Jose, California, or by clicking on the "Engineer's Report" link above.

The objective of the Project is to construct up to five monitoring wells to support the District’s Expedited Purified Water Program, which includes potential indirect potable reuse (IPR) using purified water in the District’s Los Gatos recharge ponds. The proposed Project will facilitate ground water monitoring needed to satisfy state permitting requirements for IPR projects.

At the time and place fixed for the public hearing, the Board of Directors will receive comments on the Engineer’s Report for the Project. After considering the comments on the Engineer’s Report, the Board will decide whether or not to proceed with the Project.

Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate persons with disabilities wishing to attend this public hearing.
