The Palos Verdes Peninsula Water Reliability Project is a much-needed upgrade to the Peninsula’s infrastructure that preserves the quality of life for local communities by improving drinking water service reliability for everyday and emergency water needs. The five interactive videos below provide a 360-degree look at some of the work areas where crews conducted major activities, including a new pipeline tie-in/connection, trail restoration, surge tank installation, and construction of the new pump station. For the highest viewing quality, click “settings” at the bottom of the video and ensure the video quality is set to 2160s 4K. While viewing the video, you can click around to change the perspective and “look around” the work areas. A project route map and the latest construction schedule can be found here.
Pipeline tie-in at Crest Road and Crenshaw Boulevard
“Pipeline tie-ins” refer to the connecting of the new drinking water pipeline to the existing water system. Tie-ins are complex and require the support of many crew members. In this video, you will see our crews working on the tie-in at the intersection of Crest Road and Crenshaw Boulevard. As of July 2020, all major tie-ins for the project are complete!
Welding pipeline at Crest Road and Crenshaw Boulevard
As part of pipeline tie-in work, crew members must weld together the two metal portions of the pipeline by heating the surfaces to the point of melting using a blowtorch, thus sealing them. Check out this video of our crew members welding at the intersection of Crest Road and Crenshaw Boulevard.
