    Project Description

    The City of Pasadena owns and operates an existing hydroelectric plant located in the City of Azusa.  The plant facilities include two above ground hydroelectric pipelines located on a hillside that are used to create hydropower.  Both pipelines are aged and require structural retrofitting in order to improve their resistance to damage and failure during a seismic event.  The City of Pasadena is proposing this project to provide the appropriate structural upgrades to the existing pipeline facilities.  The project would retrofit and improve the existing pipelines and would not expand the footprint of the existing facility or capacity of the pipelines, nor would it increase the number of personnel servicing the project site on an operational basis.
