ELECTRIC RAIL PROJECTS WATER SYSTEM STANDARDS
Administrative Rule Adopted by Water Bureau
DATE: May 7, 2004
TO: Water Bureau Engineering Services Staff
FROM: Richard L. Steinburgge, P.E.
Chief Engineer, Water Bureau
SUBJECT: Water System Standards for Electric Rail Projects
In accordance with the responsibilities defined by Title 21.04.070 of the
City Code, I have reviewed the water system issues associated with electric rail
projects and determined that our Electric Rail Standards should be applied to
all light rail and streetcar projects. It is our responsibility to ensure
that the appropriate design and construction standards are applied to these
projects. Accordingly, project managers will ensure that this standard is
applied. Funding responsibilities for water system modifications and
protection necessitated by applying this standard are a separate matter and
should be allocated as provided by City policy.
