With all 36,300 feet of pipeline installed, crews are conducting final tie-ins along the pipeline route to connect the new drinking water pipeline into the existing water system. The end of the project is in sight and we sincerely appreciate your patience as work progresses.
Below is an overview of ongoing and upcoming project work:
Request to Conserve Water on Wednesday, June 10
- As mentioned in our email earlier this week, on Wednesday, June 10, crews will conduct a tie-in, during which we are asking residents and businesses to conserve water to avoid a potential impact on water pressure or interruption in water service.
- We are asking residents to be mindful of their water usage, including turning off irrigation systems, between 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, June 10.
- If residents conserve water during these 24 hours, there should be a negligible impact on water pressure and no interruptions to water service.
- Please note, we have a robust emergency response team in place that will carefully monitor the situation and communicate closely with the local fire department to ensure the Peninsula remains prepared for any emergencies.
Overall Project Timing
- Once final tie-ins are complete in the next few weeks, residents will see a decrease in heavy construction and traffic control measures as crews transition to completing the remaining, minor finishing work along the water pipeline route.
- In July, we expect to begin a 30-day acceptance period during which the new water pipeline and pump station will be fully operational.
- We currently anticipate that all activities for the new water pipeline and pump station will be complete by the end of the summer.
- As a reminder, these currently represent our best estimates. Construction timing may change based on several factors, including unforeseeable field circumstances.
- There will continue to be smaller, periodic closures along Crenshaw Boulevard, between Crest Road and the Rolling Hills United Methodist Church, as finishing work for the new drinking water pipeline continues.
- Crews continue to make progress at the new pump station site on Crenshaw Boulevard, north of Silver Spur Road. Work is ongoing from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., with some intermittent Saturday work.
- A small portion of the Chandler Trail (near the Palomino Ranchos Bridle Trail) is temporarily closed due to mud in the area and will be reopened once it is dry and safe for equestrian use (included below is a graphic depicting the closure). Detours are in place around the trail closure.
- Crews are connecting the newly installed drinking water pipeline into the existing water system on Montecillo Drive. There will be two tie-ins on Montecillo Drive – one near the Jack Kramer Club and one near Palos Verdes Drive North, both on the east side of the road. Work will take place from Monday to Friday, between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., and is expected to continue until approximately the end of June.
Thank you for your continued patience!
