Renovación de infraestructura de agua esencial en Menlo Park

NoticiasComo parte del compromiso de la empresa de servicios públicos de garantizar la seguridad y confiabilidad de la infraestructura básica, hoy Cal Water dio inicio a un proyecto a gran escala para reemplazar una de las tuberías principales en Menlo Park. Esta renovación garantizará que los clientes y los bomberos continúen disponiendo del agua que necesitan para sus necesidades diarias y las de emergencia, tanto ahora como en el futuro.

Cal Water will install 4,072 feet of new 12-inch ductile iron water pipe, as the existing main that was installed in 1945 is aging and becoming less reliable. Additionally, the utility plans to replace five fire hydrants and install three additional hydrants to enhance firefighting capabilities. Installation will take place on Middlefield Road, from Ravenswood Avenue to Willow Road. The project is expected to be completed by December 2022.

"We are committed to providing our businesses and residents with a reliable, safe, and clean water supply around the clock," said District Manager Dawn Smithson. "Not only will this essential upgrade ensure we can do that, but it will also strengthen fire protection in the event of an emergency."
