Comienza la renovación de infraestructura de agua en King City

Cal Water comenzó un importante proyecto de reemplazo de tubería principal en King City que mantendrá la infraestructura y el servicio de agua vitales del área de manera segura y confiable. La actualización garantizará que los clientes, incluidos los inquilinos de Town Square y otros residentes y negocios del centro, continúen teniendo el agua que necesitan para sus necesidades diarias y de emergencia.

The project, which will take approximately six weeks to complete, includes the installation of 1,400 feet of new 8-inch PVC water main and 65 individual customer service connections. Additionally, crews will replace aging fire hydrants to improve first responders' access to water. Installation will take place on Broadway Street, between Vanderhurst Avenue and 1st Street.

“As essential service workers, our crews are committed to delivering quality, service, and value to our King City customers,” said Local Manager Marc Bloom. “This infrastructure upgrade will enable us to continue to deliver a reliable supply of safe, high-quality water to businesses and government facilities in the area, both now and for years to come, and ensure first responders have the water they need to protect the community in an emergency.”

Crews are working to minimizing traffic delays and any other temporary inconvenience during construction, which is taking place Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Following installation, crews will conduct water quality testing and connect individual customer service connections to the new water main. Water service must be briefly interrupted as crews connect customer service connections to the main; however, Cal Water will notify residents in advance of any planned shutdowns, which are normally scheduled between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. All streets, sod, and landscaping impacted by the construction will be restored to as close to the previous condition as possible.
