Demolición de tanque elevado en King CityCal Water recientemente desmanteló y retiró su tanque de agua elevado de 100,000 galones. El tanque, ubicado en el centro de King City, no cumple las normas sísmicas actuales y no se utiliza desde 2013.

According to Acting Local Manager Gary Vincelet, retrofitting the tank to make it seismically sound would have been costly and needlessly increase water rates. Instead, Cal Water introduced a pressure system, which uses well pumps and booster pumps to transfer water from existing tanks throughout the service area. This system also increases and regulates water pressure, creating a more reliable water supply for customers.

"Upgrading the empty and outdated water tank would have been very costly, resulting in higher water bills for our customers," said Vincelet. "The infrastructure we have installed highlights our commitment to provide quality, service, and value to our customers. Not only will it enhance service, but it was a more cost-effective option, which helps keeps water affordable."

Luego de que ayer el Gobernador Gavin Newsom ampliara la declaración de emergencia por sequía en California, el día de hoy Cal Water confirmó que está preparada para responder a la emergencia de la sequía y reafirmó su compromiso de ayudar a los clientes a responder a la solicitud del gobernador de conservar el agua en todo el estado.

"We partnered with customers to achieve impressive water savings during the last drought, and we are prepared to do the same this time around," said Martin A. Kropelnicki, President and CEO. "We have invested in our infrastructure and taken action to increase water supply reliability in our service areas. Now, we are offering even more support for customers who want to reduce their water use as we face increasingly serious drought conditions."

Cal Water offers:
• Rebates on high-efficiency appliances and devices, with certain rebates recently doubled
• A smart landscape tune-up program that includes an irrigation system evaluation along with installation of efficient devices and repair of most irrigation leaks at no cost to customers
• A free conservation kit that includes a garden hose nozzle with shutoff valve, high-efficiency showerheads, faucet aerators, and more
• Educational resources

Cal Water is also preparing to launch a drip system conversion rebate this summer and relaunch its turf replacement program, created during the last historic drought.
Additionally, Cal Water reminds customers to continue observing the prohibited uses of water that continue to be in effect. Las actividades en las que se derrocha agua son, entre otras:
• Using water on outdoor landscaping that causes runoff onto adjacent properties or paved areas
• Using a hose to wash vehicles unless the hose has a shutoff nozzle or similar device
• Not repairing leaks within five days of notification
• Irrigating outdoors between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., unless local ordinances state otherwise
• Using water in a fountain or other decorative water feature, except where part of a recirculating system

Customers can visit calwater.com/conservation for details on its conservation program along with a full list of prohibited uses of water. In June 2021, the utility filed its updated Water Shortage Contingency Plan with the California Public Utilities Commission, which included penalties for violating prohibited uses of water. Cal Water will continue monitoring local conditions in each of its districts and implement any additional actions based on ongoing supply and demand assessments, according to Kropelnicki.

California Water Service Group presenta una propuesta para invertir $1.020 millones en sus sistemas de agua de California entre 2022 and 2024; propone un diseño de tarifas innovador en respuesta a los cambios en las reglamentaciones https://www.calwater.com/latest_news/2021-0702-iip/ Viernes 02 de julio de 2021, 13:10:04 +0000 https://www.calwater.com/?post_type=latest_news&p=8054 Como parte de su compromiso de brindar un suministro confiable de agua segura y limpia y servicio asequible a las comunidades a las que presta servicios, Cal Water presentó ayer sus planes de mejora de la infraestructura 2022-2024 para todos sus distritos de California incluidos en la presentación de su plan de tarifa general (GRC) ante la Comisión de Servicios Públicos de California​​​​​​​ (CPUC).

Como parte de su compromiso de brindar un suministro confiable de agua segura y limpia y servicio asequible a las comunidades a las que presta servicios, Cal Water presentó ayer sus planes de mejora de la infraestructura 2022-2024 para todos sus distritos de California incluidos en la presentación de su plan de tarifa general (GRC) ante la Comisión de Servicios Públicos de California​​​​​​​ (CPUC). The proposal also contains proposed new rate designs, which seek to balance revenue stability with reduced customer impacts, especially for low-income and water-saving customers. The CPUC will analyze the infrastructure improvement plans, operating budget proposals, and rate designs to establish water rates that reflect the actual cost of service, effective no earlier than January 2023.

Cal Water proposes to invest $1.02 billion over the period of 2022-2024. Included in the proposal are $913.1 million of newly proposed capital investments along with continued funding for capital projects begun in 2021 or earlier. Almost half of Cal Water's proposed new infrastructure improvements are to replace aging water pipelines, which will enhance reliability and augment water supplies to support customers' and firefighters' needs. The plans also include, among others, upgrades to withstand power outages and Public Safety Power Shutoff events, protect customers from known and emerging water contaminants, and expand water supplies to ensure sustainability and wildfire hardening. The cost of these upgrades are expected to be offset by the utility's continuing refinements to its operating model to improve service and reduce costs.

In another part of the filing, Cal Water proposed rate design changes that would improve revenue stability but provide a discounted unit rate to the first six units of water per month (approximately 150 gallons per day) for residential customers. In the proposal, this block of usage would be charged at 25% of the average rate. The CPUC has recognized this six-unit block as essential for basic needs.

"We remain steadfast in our commitment to protect our customers, and we have prepared these multi-year, proactive infrastructure improvement plans to ensure customers continue to have safe, clean water and reliable service, both during normal and drought years," said Martin A. Kropelnicki, President and CEO. "Additionally, our proposed rate design returns us to a reasonable amount of revenue stability without the Water Revenue Adjustment Mechanism, while offering customers discounted volumetric charges for lifeline needs. We won't cut corners on our customers' health and safety, and we are committed to doing everything we can to maintain affordability and provide quality, service, and value."

The required filing begins an approximately 18-month review process by the CPUC, an independent state agency, during which it determines approved projects and sets rates for the following three years. Any changes in customer rates would become effective no sooner than January 2023 . Cal Water has proposed to the CPUC to increase revenues by $80.5 million , or 11.1%, in 2023; $43.6 million , or 5.4%, in 2024; and $43.2 million , or 5.1%, in 2025 to support these investments. If approved as filed, this would cost the average residential customer less than an additional $5 per month in all of Cal Water's service areas.

Construcción en Los AltosCal Water inició un importante proyecto de reemplazo de tubería principal en Los Altos la semana pasada que permitirá que el servicio y la infraestructura clave se mantenga de manera segura y confiable. Esta mejora garantizará que los clientes continúen teniendo el agua que necesitan tanto para sus necesidades diarias como las de emergencia.

The project, which will take about nine weeks to complete, includes the installation of approximately 2,600 feet of new 8-inch ductile iron water main. Additionally, crews will replace six aging fire hydrants to improve first responders' access to water and 24 customer service connections. Installation will take place on Lincoln Avenue, between Palm Avenue and Orange Street, and on Palm Avenue, between Washington Street and Lee Street.

According to Los Altos District Manager Dawn Smithson, a portion of the former main was located in an alley between homes, so moving the main will make it easier and less disruptive for repairs.

“This infrastructure upgrade will enable us to continue to deliver a reliable supply of safe, clean water to local customers, both now and for years to come, and ensure first responders have the water they need to protect the community in an emergency,” said Smithson.

Crews will work to minimize traffic delays and any other temporary inconvenience during construction, which will take place Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Following installation, crews will conduct water quality testing and connect individual customer service connections to the new water main. Water service must be briefly interrupted as crews connect customer service connections to the main; however, Cal Water will notify residents in advance of any planned shutdowns, which are normally scheduled between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. All streets, sod, and landscaping impacted by the construction will be restored to as close to the previous condition as possible.

Construcción en SalinasComo parte de su compromiso permanente de garantizar que la infraestructura del sistema hídrico siga siendo segura y confiable en el distrito de Salinas, Cal Water ha finalizado un proyecto de reemplazo de tubería de agua en el centro de Salinas. Esta mejora garantiza que los clientes y bomberos continúen teniendo el agua que necesitan tanto para sus necesidades diarias como las de emergencia.

The project included the installation of 3,650 feet of new 16-inch ductile iron water main and 36 new individual customer service connections. Four replacement fire hydrants were also installed. The project took place under Highway 101, from 512 N. Main St. to the other side of the highway, then continuing on Santa Clara Avenue and North Main Street and connecting to Cal Water's existing water main at East Bernal Drive. Construction also took place on North Main Street from Highway 101, connecting to the existing water main at West Rossi Street. Final paving is still being completed.

“Our crews are committed to ensuring that a reliable supply of safe, clean water remains accessible to Salinas residents for their drinking, cooking, handwashing, and other household needs, both now and for years to come,” said Interim District Manager Marc Bloom. “We would like to thank our customers and neighbors for their patience during the construction as we worked to improve the water system.”

Como parte de su plan de gestión y respuesta en situaciones de sequía, Cal Water ha presentado su plan de contingencia de escasez del agua actualizado (Programa 14.1)) ante la Comisión de Servicios Públicos de California en el día de ayer y anunció un programa de conservación ampliado para ayudar a los clientes a reducir su consumo de agua.

Cal Water is currently in Stage 1 of Schedule 14.1, which includes penalties for violating prohibited uses of water established during the last historic drought. The prohibited uses of water include:
• Applying water to outdoor landscapes that causes runoff onto adjacent property, non-irrigated areas, private and public walkways, roadways, parking lots, or structures
• Using a hose to wash motor vehicles unless the hose is fitted with a shutoff nozzle or device that causes it to cease dispensing water immediately when not in use
• Applying water to driveways and sidewalks
• Using water in a fountain or other decorative water feature, except where the water is part of a recirculating system
• Applying water to outdoor landscapes during and within 48 hours after measurable rainfall
• Using potable water to irrigate outside of new construction without drip or microspray systems
• Irrigating outdoors between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m., unless local ordinances state otherwise
• Not repairing leaks within five days of notification

Restaurants may also only serve water upon request, and hotels and motels must offer the option to opt out of daily linen and towel washing services.
While the first violation will typically result in a warning, subsequent violations may carry monetary penalties or restriction of service. Cal Water does not currently plan to implement water budgets in 2021 as part of its drought response, but will continue to monitor local conditions to determine if further steps are needed.

Additionally, Cal Water has doubled rebate amounts offered for large high-efficiency devices such as toilets, urinals, and clothes washers. Los detalles completos de los descuentos y los productos que cumplen con los requisitos se encuentran en el sitio web de la empresa de servicios públicos. Cal Water also offers:
• Free conservation kits with high-efficiency plumbing retrofit devices for residential customers
• Rebates for outdoor irrigation devices
• Educational resources
• A Smart Landscape Tuneup Program that includes an irrigation system evaluation along with installation of approved efficient devices and repair of most irrigation system leaks at no cost

Cal Water expects to launch a drip system conversion rebate and relaunch its turf replacement program, created during the previous drought, later this summer.
"Our customers answered the call to conserve water during the last drought, and we look forward to working with them to reduce their water use again this year," said Martin A. Kropelnicki, President and CEO. "We hope that we will be able to achieve necessary water savings through voluntary conservation efforts; we will continue to monitor conditions in each of our service areas to determine if additional actions are required."

NoticiasAs part of its commitment to supporting customers through the coronavirus pandemic, Cal Water has partnered with the Yuba-Sutter Economic Development Corporation (YSEDC) to provide one-time grants to offset a portion of customers' past-due water bill balances.

To be eligible, applicants must reside in Yuba County, have a past-due bill, meet maximum income qualifications, and prove an economic hardship due to the pandemic. Applications must be returned to YSEDC by June 30, 3021, with a copy of the applicant's 2020 federal tax return and June water bill. To download a copy of the application and learn more, customers may visit calwater.com/mrl-relief.

"We expect the shutoff moratorium due to nonpayments to end soon, and we are concerned that customers faced with past-due balances may become overwhelmed," said Cal Water District Manager Evan Markey. "We want to support those impacted by the coronavirus as much as possible and encourage all eligible customers to apply."

The grant is also available for sewer bills. Applicants are encouraged to check with their sewer provider for details.
