NoticiasCal Water comenzó una renovación de infraestructura del sistema de agua en el vecindario Lloyden Park de Atherton que fortalecerá la confiabilidad en el sistema de agua y la resistencia de la infraestructura para las necesidades diarias de los clientes, y mejorará la protección contra incendios en el área para los servicios de emergencia.

The project, which is expected to take approximately six weeks, includes the installation of 3,800 feet of 8-inch PVC water main and 51 2-inch individual water services. Crews will also install nine new fire hydrants. Installation will take place on Rittenhouse Avenue, Belleau Avenue, and Lloyden Drive, between Belleau Avenue and Rittenhouse Avenue.

"Proactive investments in the water system such as this water main replacement project will benefit the Atherton community for years to come, as they protect against leaks and ensure we can continue to deliver a reliable supply of safe, high-quality drinking water and sufficient resources for firefighters to protect our neighborhoods when they need it," said District Manager Dawn Smithson. "Strategic upgrades to our water infrastructure are an essential part of fulfilling our promise to deliver quality, service, and value to Atherton residents and businesses."

Crews will make every effort to minimize traffic delays during construction, which will occur Monday through Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 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 the asphalt and concrete impacted by the construction.

Following installation of the new water main, crews must temporarily interrupt water service for one to two hours while individual services are connected to the new water main and put into service. Crews will also notify residents in advance of any planned shutdowns, which are normally scheduled between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.

NoticiasCal Water comenzó una mejora en la infraestructura de agua en Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif., que fortalecerá la confiabilidad en el sistema de agua y la resistencia de la infraestructura para las necesidades diarias de los clientes y, a su vez, mejorará la protección contra incendios en el área para que los bomberos protejan a la comunidad en caso de emergencia. This is a separate infrastructure upgrade from the Palos Verdes Peninsula Water Reliability Project.

The project, which is expected to take approximately 10 weeks, includes the installation of 3,200 feet of new 6-inch ductile iron water main, as well as the replacement of about 40 individual water services. Crews will also replace four fire hydrants. Installation will take place on Mustang Road, from Surrey Lane to Bronco Drive; on Bronco Drive, from Palos Verdes Drive East to Martingale Drive; and along a portion of Stallion Road.

"Our promise to deliver quality, service, and value to our customers begins with a commitment to proactively upgrade our water infrastructure," said District Manager Dan Armendariz. "These investments in our water system will help protect against leaks, ensure we can continue to deliver safe, high-quality drinking water, and provide fire protection to Rancho Palos Verdes residents and businesses, both now and for decades to come."

Crews are making every effort to minimize traffic delays during construction, which is being performed Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. After construction is completed, crews will conduct water quality testing before connecting individual service lines to the new water main. Crews will also restore all streets, sod, and landscaping impacted by the construction to as close to the previous condition as possible.

Following installation, water service will be temporarily interrupted for one to two hours while individual services are connected to the new water main and put into service. Cal Water will notify residents in advance of any planned shutdowns, which are normally scheduled between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

NoticiasComo parte de su compromiso de ser un guardián responsable del medioambiente, Cal Water ha comenzado a proveerle agua reciclada al centro tecnológico de Dominguez (DTC) en Carson, Calif. El agua reciclada se provee conforme al nuevo acuerdo con el proveedor mayorista de Cal Water, West Basin Municipal Water District.

Under the agreement, Cal Water estimates that the DTC will use about 135 acre-feet, or almost 44 million gallons, of recycled water per year, freeing up precious potable water supplies, according to Cal Water District Manager Dan Armendariz. DTC is a 438-acre, 20-building business, industry, technology, and office space by Watson Land Company near the Alameda Corridor. All recycled water operations will be regulated by the independent state agency that oversees Cal Water's water utility operations.

"In the same way we're committed to our customers and communities, we're also committed to protecting the environment," Armendariz said. "This includes operating with long-term sustainability in mind and utilizing alternative sources of supply when possible. We're pleased to be partnering with the Dominguez Technology Center and West Basin on this endeavor."

Early estimates suggest water savings of 125 million gallons

Cal Water has begun replacing 850 toilets around the University of the Pacific's campus with new, water-efficient commodes as part of the University's initiative to be more environmentally friendly. The new toilets will require 1.28 gallons per flush (gpf), whereas the older toilets used up to six gpf, saving an estimated 125 million gallons over the fixtures' lifetime.

This toilet replacement project is being performed though Cal Water's conservation and rebate program, which is offered to its commercial, industrial, and residential customers. It is one of the largest replacement projects to date for the utility, according to Ken Jenkins, Cal Water's Director of Drought Management and Conservation.

Contractor Southwest Environmental will be completing the installations and using American Standard, Niagra, ProFlo, and Sloan models, all of which are EPA WaterSense-approved. The replacements are expected to be completed by the end of August.

"By utilizing this program and partnering with us, the University will make a meaningful reduction in its water use and be a model in water-use efficiency for other institutions," Jenkins said. "Building lasting, efficient water-use habits and using resources available to our customers are important as we look ahead to the State's long-term conservation regulations."

Businesses and residents in Cal Water's service area can visit this site's Rebates and Programs page to support their efforts to use water wisely.

NoticiasLas cuadrillas de Cal Water están trabajando en el barrio Rancho de Los Altos y en las áreas circundantes para instalar una nueva tubería de agua que fortalecerá la confiabilidad y la resistencia de la infraestructura para los clientes, y mejorará la protección contra incendios en el área para el personal de auxilio.

The project, which is expected to be completed in late August, includes the installation of 4,200 feet of new 16-inch, ductile iron water main on Covington Road, between Parma Way and South El Monte Avenue, and extending to the intersection of Foothill Expressway and South El Monte Avenue. It is the first of a two-phase project to extend a new, large-capacity water main through this residential part of Los Altos, and enable crews to take portions of an existing 18-inch water main along Foothill Expressway out of service for maintenance or replacement without impacting water service.

"This water infrastructure upgrade will ensure water service remains reliable for our community both during normal operations and in the event of a natural disaster or wildland fire," said Cal Water District Manager Ron Richardson. "Investments in our water system like this project mean our customers can continue to receive the quality, service, and value we promise to them, both now and for decades to come."

Work is being performed Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., and crews are making every effort to minimize traffic delays during construction. When the project is completed, crews will restore all streets, sod, and landscaping impacted by the construction to as close to the previous condition as possible.

Following installation, water service will be temporarily interrupted for one to two hours while crews connect the new pipeline to the existing system. Cal Water will notify residents in advance of any planned shutdowns.

Nuevo pozo y sistema de tratamiento en East Los AngelesCal Water ha completado un proyecto de mejora de la infraestructura del agua para respaldar a la comunidad de East Los Angeles todos los días y en las emergencias hidráulicas. The utility constructed two new groundwater wells, which supply up to 1,800 gallons per minute per well, and installed a water treatment facility to ensure the water pumped and delivered to customers meets all state and federal water quality standards.

According to Cal Water District Manager Jim Crawford, by installing the wells, the utility can take greater advantage of its water rights and utilize less purchased water which is a tremendous cost savings to the customer base.

"This project reflects our commitment to provide industry-leading water service and will reduce our dependence on more costly purchased surface water," Crawford said. "The new well and treatment station will provide a reliable supply of safe, high-quality water to residents and businesses every day for generations to come and sufficient resources for firefighters to protect our community in emergencies."
