Calaveras Public Utility District will begin replacing a section of aging water pipeline on Sunset Street in San Andreas from the intersection of Russell Road and Mariposa Street which will cause minor traffic delays in the area through the middle of September.  This project is part of the District’s efforts in committing to replace water distribution systems throughout the District.

Construction work will begin the week of August 14, 2017.  Customers will be kept informed through the CPUD website at www.cpud.org

If a planned water outage is necessary for the line replacement, notices will be placed at the affected properties. 

Construction will cause minor traffic delays near the active work area, and customers may experience short water service disruptions when the new pipeline is being connected to the system.  The portions of the paved roadway impacted by construction will be returned to a condition as good or better than prior to the project.

Most of the water distribution pipelines in the area are more than 40 years old and have degraded over the years and reaching the end of their useful lifespan.  As the pipelines age, the risk of breaks and system leaks increase.  Instead of repeatedly repairing the same section of pipeline, the CPUD Board of Directors dedicated a portion of Capital Replacement funds to the replacement of larger sections of pipeline that have frequent and costly maintenance demands. 

For more information about this project, contact the District at (209) 754-9442 or email (redacted).
