The MND addressed installation of approximately 3,500 feet of bypass pipeline along a portion of South Weed Boulevard, Boles Street, and up School Hill to the existing Hillside Tank to convey water from South Weed to North Weed.

The Addendum also addresses the addition of water system improvements in the downtown area, Bel Air area, and Roseburg Mill area that are required to eliminate water leaks, provide adequate fire flows and fire protection, and improve accessibility for ongoing maintenances to ensure a safe and reliable water supply for the City’s customers. The subject properties are not included on any list of hazardous waste facilities/sites pursuant to Section 65962.5 of the California Government Code.
