Cal Water ha completado una renovación en la infraestructura de agua en el área de Laurel Park de  Salinas que fortalecerá la confiabilidad en el sistema de agua y la resistencia de la infraestructura, además de mejorar la protección contra incendios en el área. 

The project, which began in January, included the installation of 1,180 feet of new 8-inch water main and 220 feet of new 6-inch water main. Additionally, crews installed 65 new 1-inch customer service connections and three fire hydrants.

"This important infrastructure upgrade will help protect against leaks and ensure we keep providing a reliable supply of safe, high-quality drinking water to our customers. And, replacing three aging fire hydrants will also make sure our first responders have the water they need to protect the community in an emergency," said District Manager Brenda Granillo. "These improvements are part of our proactive investment in the water system infrastructure so we can continue to deliver quality, service, and value to Salinas residents and businesses."

The project took place on Polk Street, Polk Circle, and Monroe Street in Salinas near Laurel Park. Crews conducted water quality testing at the completion of the project before connecting individual water services to the new main, and restored all impacted streets, sod, and landscaping to as close to the previous condition as possible.

NoticiasCal Water ha comenzado una renovación en la infraestructura de agua en el "área principal" de Dixon que fortalecerá la confiabilidad en el sistema de agua y la resistencia de la infraestructura y, a su vez, mejorará la protección contra incendios local para los clientes de la ciudad.

Cal Water is performing this upgrade as part of its partnership with the City of Dixon to help upgrade and temporarily support its water service area as the city established its new water department. The project, which is expected to take approximately three months to complete, includes the installation of 1,400 feet of new 6- and 8-inch PVC water main and 31 new individual service lines from the water main to customers' water meters. Additionally, crews will replace two existing fire hydrants and install one new, additional fire hydrant.

"This water infrastructure improvement project will ensure residents and businesses in the core area of Dixon continue to receive safe and reliable water service for their everyday needs and first responders have the resources they need to protect the community during an emergency," said Cal Water Local Manager Jack Caldwell. "We're glad we're able to assist the City of Dixon and provide quality, service, and value to the city and its customers, just as we are committed to doing day in and day out for our customers."

The installation will take place on Walnut Park Avenue, from North Fifth Street to Doyle Lane, and on North Sixth Street, from Walnut Park Avenue to East C Street. The work will be performed Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Crews will backfill trenches daily with temporary asphalt to keep motorists and residents safe, and also make every effort to minimize traffic delays during construction.

Water quality testing will be conducted at the completion of the project. After test results are returned, water service will be temporarily interrupted while individual service lines are connected to the new water main. Residents will be notified in advance of any planned shutdowns, which are normally scheduled between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. At the conclusion of the project, crews will restore all streets, sod, and landscaping impacted by the construction to as close to the previous condition as possible.
