The City will install approximately 69,300 linear feet (13 miles) of 20-inch through 66-inch diameter Regional Transmission Mains (RTMs). These RTMs are treated (potable) water pipelines that will convey potable water from the new Southeast Surface Water Treatment Facility (SESWTF), which is also being constructed as part of the City of Fresno Water Division’s Capital Improvement Plan, to existing smaller-diameter water distribution piping. These transmission pipelines will enable water from the treatment facility to reach residents and businesses throughout the City.
