Currently PCWA has an existing pipeline located along Main Street. Dutch Flat Mutual owns a pipeline that feeds DFMs 180,000 gallon storage tank from their water treatment plant. This pipe crosses PCWA's existing pipe in Main Street. As a first phase, the project improvements would include connecting the Alta pipe to a PCWA pipe in Main Street, constructing an altitude valve station, and installing a meter. Upon completion of these improvements, PCWA would supply treated water to DFM and DFM would continue to supply water to their customers. Once DFM is served, their water treatment plant and two redwood storage tanks would be decommissioned and/or demolished.
Phase two of the project would include replacing all approximately 8,600-feet of distribution pipe, 22 valves, 24 fire hydrants, appurtenances, service lateral, meters, and subsequently taking ownership of the entire distribution system within Dutch Flat. Upon completion of phase two, PCWA would provide retail service to all DFM customers.
