Cal Water ha completado una renovación en la infraestructura del sistema de agua de Arden del distrito de Kern River Valley que fortalecerá la confiabilidad en el sistema de agua y la resistencia de la infraestructura para las necesidades diarias de los clientes. Además, la renovación también mejorará la protección contra incendios para que los bomberos tengan acceso a los recursos que necesitan durante una emergencia.
The project, which began in February, included the installation of 990 feet of new 4-inch and 6-inch PVC water main along Adams Road, as well as the relocation of a pressure-reducing valve station. Crews also installed one new fire hydrant and new 1-inch customer service connections.
“This infrastructure upgrade will ensure we can continue to deliver reliable water service to local residents and augment water flow to firefighters, so they can protect our community in an emergency,” said Local Manager Jon Yasin. “Strategic and proactive water infrastructure investments like this enable us to fulfill our promise to deliver quality, service, and value to our customers.”
Due to the challenging terrain, crews utilized expansion material to crack rocks in order to install the new water main during the project. Crews also conducted water quality testing before connecting individual water services to the new main and restoring all impacted streets, sod, and landscaping.
