Bayshore Water Main Construction Project – Sunset Drive

Cal Water would like to make you aware of a construction project tentatively scheduled beginning the week of February 09, 2015. The project will replace the existing 4-inch and 6-inch cast iron mains that have been subject to leaks. The work will be done between the hours of 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM.

The project will begin on Sunset Drive at the intersection of Brittan Avenue near Wilshire Ct. The project will then continue along Sunset Drive concluding at Rogers Avenue.

When crews are working in the area, the road will be closed to through traffic, with local access only. Residents should plan for extra time and pay attention to where the crew is working, to allow for safe access into and out of their driveways. Feel free to contact us if you have any concerns.

The first week we have tentatively planned to pothole utilities, saw cut the trench and then we begin to install the new 6-inch ductile iron water main. Once the main is installed, it must pass a disinfection process which takes approximately one week. During the disinfection process, the mainline crew is not typically working and the road is not closed.

After the new main passes the disinfection testing, we will return to tie in the new main to the water system and transfer the service connections to the new main.

We will notify you with a door tag 48 hours prior to any planned service interruption. Typically planned water shut downs are of longer duration. During construction, you may experience a brief disruption in water service. We will make every effort to provide advance notice prior to any service interruptions.

Please note that temporary asphalt will be applied to the excavated areas until permanent paving is completed. Our goal is to complete the project by 03/13/2015.
