In June 2018, California Water Service (Cal Water) began installing 7 miles of new drinking water pipeline to improve the reliability and safety of the drinking water system that serves all 90,000 of the Peninsula’s residents. Learn more by watching this video.
In June 2018, we began a major project to improve the drinking water service to the residents and businesses on the Palos Verdes Peninsula. The project will replace the existing drinking water pipeline and add a second water pipeline — a much-needed upgrade to the Peninsula’s infrastructure that will preserve quality of life and drinking water service reliability. View the route of the project.
We are managing the project with both a sense of responsibility and transparency and is working closely with the City of Rolling Hills Estates in addition to other public officials and agencies to reduce traffic, environmental, and cultural impacts. We are committed to communicating closely with homeowners, HOAs, schools, equestrian organizations, and other community stakeholders to keep everyone informed of what we are doing, when we’re doing it, and why.
Did You Know? Most of the PV Peninsula is served by one drinking water pipeline that is more than 60 years old, and a single pumping mechanism that circulates water to the area’s hilly terrain. This project will help guard against the significant risks of prolonged drinking water service outages caused by an aging infrastructure and natural disasters — ensuring the Peninsula is better prepared for the future.
