SEISMIC UPGRADE OF BAY DIVISION PIPELINE NOS. 3 AND 4.  The Seismic Upgrade of Bay Division Pipeline (BDPL) Nos. 3 and 4 cross the Hayward Fault in the City of Fremont, Alameda County, California.  The sections of the pipeline to be upgraded are located within the 24.4-meter (80-foot) SFPUC ROW between the existing South and North Shutoff Stations near the intersection of Interstate 680 (I-680) and Mission Boulevard. Within the project area, the pipelines cross I-680, three I-680 on-ramps, Mission Boulevard, Agua Caliente Creek (contained within a concrete culvert), and Agua Fria Creek (a creek that crosses the pipeline ROW and flows within its natural bed within the ROW). The SFPUC ROW traverses residential areas on both the north and south ends.  Request for Review and Comment on the documentation and draft Memorandum of Agreement prepared by United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) for Section 106 review of the proposed installation of approximately 719 meters (2,360 feet) of 1.8- to 2.0-meter (72- to 78-inch) diameter welded steel pipe (BDPL No. 3X) directly adjacent to the existing 2.0-meter (78-inch)-diameter BDPL No. 3 between the North and South Shutoff Stations. In addition, upgrades to the existing BDPL No. 4 will be implemented to seismically strengthen the pipeline where it crosses all three traces of the Hayward fault, and to prevent damage to the new BDPL No. 3X should BDPL No. 4 fail. The new BDPL No. 3X will parallel the two existing pipelines at a depth comparable to or below the existing BDPL Nos. 3 and 4, and all facilities with the exception of access structures will be constructed below ground. All improvements will be constructed within the 24.4-meter (80-foot) SFPUC ROW between the existing South and North Shutoff Stations, and temporary bridges will be constructed across Mission Boulevard and the I-680 on-ramps where they are crossed by the ROW to facilitate traffic flow during construction. For planning purposes, the project area has been divided into eight construction zones and includes four staging areas where grading (but no excavation) will occur.

Preliminary Recommendation:  Direct staff to draft written comments of the Commission to be forwarded to the US Army Corps of Engineer (USACE) and State Office of Historic Preservation (SHPO).

(Cont’d from 2/2/11 hearing)
