Additionally, it will help first responders better protect the community in the event of an emergency."

Crews will make every effort to minimize traffic delays during construction, which will be performed Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Following installation, crews will conduct water quality testing and connect existing individual customer service lines to the new water main.

The project, which is expected to be completed in three to four months, includes the installation of 1,800 feet of new 8-inch ductile iron water main along Valecroft Avenue, from Shadowglen Court to the end of the cul-de-sac.

Cal Water will notify residents in advance of any planned shutdowns, which are normally scheduled between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Crews will also restore all streets, sod, and landscaping impacted by the construction.
