Developing a Risk Assessment for a Linear Utility Construction Project: Making the Best Decisions for CGP Compliance and Water Quality
« All Publications

There are many components to developing a risk assessment for a linear utility construction project (LUP) where the analysis methods are not addressed in the CGP.

It is up to the QSD to determine the appropriate way to segment the project, what latitude and longitude to use for the R, K, and LS factors, how and when to use a site-specific LS factor, and determining if the receiving water risk is medium or high, to name a few. This presentation will work through developing a risk assessment for a fictitious LUP project that spans RWQCB jurisdictions and watersheds with low and high receiving water risks, discussing the decisions made during each step of the process.
