Cal Water comenzará un proyecto de mejora de la infraestructura de agua en el norte de Redondo Beach que reforzará la confiabilidad del sistema de agua y la resistencia de la infraestructura para las necesidades diarias de los clientes. Esta renovación también mejorará la protección contra incendios en la zona, para que los bomberos puedan proteger a la comunidad durante una emergencia.
The project, which is scheduled to begin Oct. 14 and expected to take approximately four weeks, will include the installation of 3,757 feet of new 6-inch PVC water main, as well as the replacement of two existing fire hydrants and individual service connections. Installation will take place on 182nd Place, from Felton Lane to Firmona Avenue; 183rd Street, from Inglewood Avenue to Felton Lane; 184th Street, from Felton Lane to Firmona Avenue; and 185th Street, from Inglewood Avenue to Felton Lane. No Cal Water work will be done on Inglewood Avenue itself.
"These investments in our water system will help protect against leaks and ensure we can continue to deliver safe, high-quality drinking water to our northern Redondo Beach customers for years to come. Additionally, the upgrade will ensure our firefighters have the water they need during emergencies," said District Manager Dan Armendariz. "Proactive upgrades such as this are an example of our commitment to deliver quality, service, and value to North Redondo residents and businesses."
Crews will make every effort to minimize traffic delays during construction, which will be performed Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. After construction is completed, crews will conduct water quality testing and connect individual service lines to the new water main. Crews will also restore all streets, sod, and landscaping impacted by the construction.
