Water System Improvements

The proposed project consists of four elements that can be implemented as one project or individually. Project components relative to the District boundary are shown on Figure 1. Individual components are described as follows:
Spring UV Disinfection Project: The District has applied for project funding through the Interim Emergency Drinking Water Funding program and was denied. The project consists of construction of a 192-square-foot building to house one 6-inch UV Module; piping; turbidimeter; magnetic flowmeter; electrical/telemetry; and controls; and with site piping modifications to tie into the existing system. Refer to Figures 2 and 3.
Wildland Fuel Reduction Project: The project consists of removing surface and ladder fuels within a 100-foot-wide swath along the District?s property boundary adjacent to residential areas; 50 feet on each side of the District?s spring supply pipeline; and 100 feet all around the District?s Goodwin and Boyle Water Tanks. The clearing work will be performed by hand; in accordance with an approved Timber Harvest Plan. It is estimated the total fuel reduction area is about 16 acres. Refer to Figure 4.
South Quincy Pressure Zone Feasibility Study: The feasibility study will consist of developing a GIS-based hydraulic model of the District?s water system; utilizing recent water consumption data. The District?s 2001 Master Water Plan would be utilized to determine appropriate consumption peaking factors and growth conditions. Using flows and pressures generated by the model; alternatives would be considered and modelled to determine their viability for correcting the low water pressure and substandard fire flows in the vicinity of the Goodwin and Boyle Tanks. After the best alternative is determined using a decision matrix considering monetary and non-monetary factors; the District will seek funding to design and construct the improvements. Refer to Figure 5 for delineation of the low water pressure area in Southern Quincy.
Central/Edwards/Summerfield Waterline Replacement Project: This project consists of replacing approximately 1;700 feet of existing small-diameter water main with new 6-inch PVC water main and appurtenances on Center; Edwards; Summerfield; and North Church Streets. In addition; four new fire hydrants; eight 6-inch gate valves; and two 2-inch gate valves will be installed. Refer to Figure 1.
