DISCUSSION
The Long Beach Gas and Oil Department (LBGO) is involved in a Capital Improvement Program to replace aging infrastructure for its natural gas utility. The work will be done on various streets throughout the city and consists primarily of reconstructing portions of the underground natural gas pipeline distribution system. This recommendation is to establish the contract for an outside contractor to perform main and service line replacements during Fiscal Year 2010. The materials and supplies required for the project will be purchased by LBGO under separate material and supply contracts. This contract is funded out of the Gas Fund's infrastructure replacement budget. In accordance with the California Environmental Quality Act, Categorical Exemption Number CE-70-09 has been issued for this project.
