Cal Water ha completado el reemplazo de más de 6,500 pies de tuberías principales de agua envejecidas en Arboleda Drive, entre Springer Road y Campbell Avenue, en Los Altos, Calif., para mejorar la confiabilidad en el sistema de agua y la protección contra incendios para la comunidad local.
The original four-inch steel main, which was more than 60 years old, was replaced with six-inch PVC pipe to increase flow. PVC does not rust or corrode and is considered to be more cost-effective than other piping materials.
"At Cal Water, we strive to get the most life out of our infrastructure but also make improvements before problems arise to use our ratepayers' funds most cost-effectively," said Cal Water District Manager Ron Richardson. "Replacing the aging main now is a wise investment, as it will help us continue to deliver a reliable and high-quality water supply to our local customers and provide sufficient supplies for firefighters to protect our community in emergencies."
