Comienza la renovación de la infraestructura de agua en North Fair Oaks

Como parte del compromiso de Cal Water por garantizar la seguridad de la infraestructura crítica, se inició un proyecto de reemplazo de tubería principal en North Fair Oaks, cerca de Everest Public High School. El proyecto garantizará que los clientes y bomberos tengan el agua que necesitan para sus necesidades cotidianas y en casos de emergencia.

The work, which began this week and is expected to be completed in September, includes installation of 1,635 feet of new 8-inch PVC water main and replacement of 57 individual customer service connections. Crews will also install four new fire hydrants to improve access for firefighters. Installation will take place on Fifth Avenue, between Edison Way and Middlefield Road.

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

Crews will make every effort to minimize traffic delays during construction, which will be performed Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Crews will also minimize any temporary service interruptions needed so that residents continue to have the water they need during this time. Residents will be notified in advance of any planned shutdowns, which are normally scheduled 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.
