Cal Water has completed installation of a new water main along Hillside Boulevard, Hemlock Avenue, and Larch Avenue in South San Francisco. The new main will improve water system reliability in the area and increase fire protection.
Crews installed approximately two miles of new 6-inch water main beginning in July 2017 and ending this month. The new pipes are made of PVC, which generally lasts longer than other materials and does not corrode. The durability of these new pipes also means that customers will see benefits from this infrastructure upgrade both now and for decades to come.
“In 2017, Cal Water invested almost $11.3 million in water infrastructure improvement projects in our Bayshore District, and this large-scale water system upgrade is just one project that we will complete in 2018 to provide better quality, service, and value to our customers,” said District Manager Ross Moilan.
