Infrastructure Upgrades in Westlake

Cal Water has begun two water infrastructure upgrades to improve water supply reliability and fire protection throughout its Westlake District. The two projects include installation of a combined 2,250 feet of new water main and four new fire hydrants, which are estimated to be completed in October 2023.

Residents may notice work in the following areas from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays:

  • From Valley Spring Drive to Kingston Circle
  • From Bridgewood Lane to Stone River Court

“These improvements help Cal Water maintain a reliable water supply for both everyday and emergency needs, while also preventing water loss from aging pipes,” said Doug Varney, District Manager. “We appreciate our customers, neighbors, and motorists for their patience as we complete these important projects that will benefit their area for decades to come.”

The upgrades are part of Cal Water’s Main Replacement Program, which was implemented in 2014 to proactively replace aging infrastructure, while maximizing the existing infrastructure’s life. The Westlake District has 115 miles of main, and on average, the district replaces 1,400 feet of main per year.

Cal Water appreciates the cooperation of multiple agencies in helping them carry out these improvements, including County Pipeline, the general contractor performing these projects.
