Cal Water ha comenzado una renovación de infraestructura de agua en Selma que mejorará la confiabilidad en el suministro de agua y la resistencia de la infraestructura para las necesidades diarias de los clientes y las necesidades de emergencia de los bomberos.
Este proyecto incluye la instalación de 1,000 pies de nueva tubería principal de agua de PVC de 6 y 8 pulgadas y el reemplazo de conexiones de servicio al cliente individuales. Crews will also install two new fire hydrants and move one existing fire hydrant to improve access for firefighters. Installation is taking place on Evergreen Street, from Olive Street to Dockery Avenue, and on Dockery Avenue, from Evergreen Street to Peach Street.
"This important infrastructure upgrade will enable us to continue to deliver a reliable supply of safe, high-quality drinking water to our customers, both now and for many years to come. Additionally, it will help first responders protect the community in an emergency," said District Manager Stephen Johnson. "Proactive upgrades such as this are a critical part our promise to deliver quality, service, and value to Selma residents and businesses."
Crews will make every effort to minimize traffic delays during construction, which will be performed Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Following installation, crews will conduct water quality testing and connect existing individual customer service lines to the new water main. Crews will restore all streets, sod, and landscaping impacted by the construction.
