Comienza la instalación de una nueva tubería principal de agua en Ladera

Como parte del compromiso de Cal Water por garantizar la seguridad de la infraestructura crítica, se ha iniciado una renovación en la infraestructura de agua en el área de Ladera de Portola Valley para garantizar que los clientes y bomberos continúen teniendo el agua que necesitan tanto para sus necesidades diarias como las de emergencia.

The project, which is expected to be completed in late June, includes the installation of 400 feet of new 6-inch ductile iron water main and four individual customer service connections. Crews will also install one new fire hydrant to improve access for firefighters. Installation will take place on Andeta Way, from La Mesa Drive to the end of Andeta Way.

"As essential service workers, our crews will continue working to deliver quality, service, and value to residents and businesses in Ladera," said District Manager Dawn Smithson. "This important infrastructure upgrade will enable us to keep delivering a reliable supply of safe, high-quality water to our customers for their drinking, cooking, handwashing, and other household needs, both now and for many years to come. Additionally, it will help first responders protect the community in an emergency."

Crews will make every effort to minimize traffic delays during construction, which will be performed Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Following installation, crews will conduct water quality testing before connecting existing individual customer service lines to the new water main. Crews will also restore all streets, sod, and landscaping impacted by the construction.
