Cal Water is committed to maintaining the beauty of the Palos Verdes Peninsula and ensuring any temporary inconveniences will be minimized. That is why we are working closely with the City of Rolling Hills Estates and other public officials and agencies to reduce traffic, environmental, and cultural impacts for all communities.
Here are just a few of the steps we are taking to keep life running smoothly for Peninsula residents:
- We have met with more than 130 residents, businesses, schools, and other stakeholders in areas that will be impacted by construction.
- We have established a Neighborhood Outreach Committee to meet on a quarterly basis and provide input on project updates and progress, as well as work with Cal Water to share information from and conduct outreach to the community.
- Working with the City of Rolling Hills Estates and customers along the pipeline route, we will divide the project into stages and schedule construction at optimal times to reduce inconveniences.
- We will also use construction techniques that will minimize impact to trees and surrounding natural areas.
- Any temporary traffic impacts or trail closures will be indicated by clearly marked signs and timed to minimize traffic effects for drivers and trail users. You can sign up here for text and email alerts to get real-time project updates.
- In addition to real-time updates via text and email, we are working with the three major community-based traffic and navigation applications, Google Maps, Apple Maps, and Waze, to provide real-time construction and detour information. Each application is available for download on smart devices through Google Play and the App Store.
