Cal Water has selected its Bear Gulch District Manager Dawn Smithson to also lead the utility's nearby Los Altos District. Smithson succeeds District Manager Ron Richardson, who retired June 30, after 35 years of service to the Los Altos community.

Smithson has been with Cal Water for 17 years and has extensive hands-on knowledge of water distribution, operations, and treatment systems. She started her Cal Water career as an engineer, then moved to operations as the Bear Gulch Local Manager in 2012, before being promoted to District Manager in 2015. Smithson has Water Treatment Grade Two and Water Distribution Grade Two certifications from the State Water Resources Control Board, and is a registered Professional Engineer in the State of California. She also holds a bachelor's of science from Olivet Nazarene University and a master's degree in civil engineering from San Jose State University.

According to Vice President of Operations Mike Mares, Cal Water chose to have Smithson lead both districts to utilize employee resources as optimally as possible.

"Dawn brings her engineering background and extensive experience in water quality, operations, and community involvement in the Bay Area to our local operations in Los Altos," said Mares. "She will evaluate optimization potential and operational resilience in these neighboring servicing areas and is the perfect choice to keep the system running smoothly. With Dawn at the helm, I am confident that our Los Altos District customers and community will continue to receive the quality, service, and value they have come to expect and deserve while under Ron's leadership.

“We also thank Ron for his dedicated service to Cal Water and the Los Altos community over the past three-and-a-half decades, and we wish him the very best in his retirement,” Mares added.

Cal Water comenzó una renovación de infraestructura del sistema de agua en Carson como parte del compromiso permanente de la compañía de garantizar la seguridad y confiabilidad de la infraestructura crítica. La renovación garantizará que los clientes y bomberos tengan el agua que necesitan para sus necesidades cotidianas y en casos de emergencia.

The project, which began this week and is expected to be completed in August, includes the installation of 3,850 feet of new 8-inch PVC water main on East Dominguez St., South Baltic Ave., South Caspian Ave., South Adriatic Ave., and East Van Buren Street.

"Our crews work hard every day to deliver quality, service, and value to our customers and firefighters," said District Manager Dan Armendariz. "This important infrastructure upgrade will enable us to keep delivering the reliable supply of safe, high-quality water that Carson residents and businesses count on for their drinking, cooking, handwashing, and other household needs, and ensure first responders have the water they need to protect the community."

Crews will make every effort to minimize traffic delays and any temporary service interruptions during construction, which will be performed Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Residents will be notified in advance of any planned shutdowns, which are normally scheduled during regular work hours.

Following construction, crews will conduct water quality testing before connecting existing individual customer service lines to the new water main. Crews will also restore all streets, sod, and landscaping impacted by the construction.

Como parte de su compromiso de garantizar que la infraestructura crítica se mantenga segura y fiable, Cal Water ha completado importantes mejoras de infraestructura en el sur de Stockton, lo que ofrecerá a los clientes y bomberos el agua que necesitan para sus necesidades cotidianas y en casos de emergencia.

The projects, which went into service this month and will be completed within the next couple of months, included the construction and installation of a new 2.6-million-gallon steel water storage tank and booster pump station at Cal Water's South El Dorado Street facility. The upgrade will ensure there is a reliable supply of water to meet current and future local customer demand and that water is pumped evenly throughout the system. Additionally, the new storage tank and booster station will increase emergency water storage and enhance fire protection for first responders. Crews also installed a new permanent generator to ensure water service will remain reliable during any power outages.

"As essential service workers, our crews are working hard every day to keep delivering quality, service, and value to Stockton residents and businesses," said District Manager Jeremiah Mecham. "These important infrastructure upgrades will enable us to provide a reliable supply of safe, high-quality water to our customers for their drinking, cooking, handwashing, and other household needs, both now and for years to come, and help first responders protect the community during an emergency."

Crews also installed a new bio-retention, vegetated, drought-tolerant area and grassy swale to reduce storm water runoff to the city's storm drain system. Crews will soon install new street curbs, sidewalks, and gutters around the site, as well as new trees and landscaping.
