Upcoming Tie-In Work and Temporary Low Water Pressure on the Peninsula
Please see the following message from Cal Water regarding upcoming tie-in work and temporary low water pressure that could begin as early as midnight on June 10. (Please note that Cal Water is aware of concerns about a drop in water pressure occurring during hot and dry weather conditions. Cal Water has assured City Staff that in the event of a brush fire, protocols are in place and there would be adequate water pressure for firefighting):
We hope this finds you well. We’re reaching out to provide you with an update on California Water Service’s (Cal Water) Palos Verdes Peninsula Water Reliability Project.
As you may know, crews have been conducting final tie-ins along the pipeline route, which involves connecting the new drinking water pipeline into the existing water system. This Wednesday, June 10, crews will conduct a tie-in that may result in a temporary drop in water pressure for residents and businesses on the Peninsula beginning as early as midnight and continuing for approximately 24 hours. To prevent further lowering of water pressure or any potential interruptions in water service, we kindly ask that residents be mindful of water usage during this time and conserve water where possible, including turning off irrigation systems.
If you have any questions, please reach out to us at PVPWaterProject@calwater.com. As a reminder, all construction timing is estimated and may change based on several factors, including unforeseeable field circumstances.
As we head into?the final stretch of the project and see the light at the end of the pipeline,?we?want to reiterate our gratitude for your patience?as we complete this?much-needed upgrade to the Peninsula’s water infrastructure.
