As part of the 30-day acceptance period, crews have been closely monitoring the new drinking water pipeline and pump station to ensure that it continues to operate optimally. Based on this monitoring, we’ve determined that some finishing work is needed near the intersection of Crest Road and Crenshaw Boulevard that will require temporary traffic control.
Work will take place as early as Monday, September 21, between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. There will be temporary, partial lane closures on Crest Road to facilitate work, but vehicles will be able to travel in each direction at all times. Please expect delays and use alternate routes, where possible.
As we approach the end of the project, we want to reiterate our gratitude for your patience as we complete this much-needed upgrade to the Peninsula’s water infrastructure. Please feel free to reach out to us at PVPWaterProject@calwater.com with any questions.
We are pleased to announce that the new pump station and drinking water pipeline are officially in service! The 30-day acceptance period began on August 31, during which the new water infrastructure will be closely monitored to ensure that it continues to operate properly.
Of note, Palos Verdes Peninsula residents are already experiencing the benefits of this project. The new water pipeline and pump station were critical to maintaining water service to residents and businesses during recent rotating power outages and helped prevent major water service interruptions during some of the hottest days of the year. As California grapples with several wildfires, this new water infrastructure is already delivering on its promise - to help ensure Peninsula residents and firefighters have safe and reliable water service for everyday and emergency needs.
Crews are continuing minor restoration and finishing work along the pipeline route to ensure that all areas where construction took place are returned to the same - or better - condition. All work is taking place from Monday to Friday, with some intermittent Saturday work. There may be small, temporary closures when needed for safety, but there will always be at least one lane open in all directions.
Below is an overview of the areas where you may see this work taking place:
Crenshaw Boulevard, between Crest Road and the Rolling Hills United Methodist Church (between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.)
Crenshaw Boulevard, at the new pump station, north of Silver Spur Road (between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.)
Lariat Lane and along the Botanic Garden Trail (between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.)
Rolling Hills Road (private road) (between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m.)
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to the project team at PVPWaterProject@CalWater.com.
Thank you for your continued patience, we appreciate it!
