Waterline Replacement Project on Pixley Avenue (San Andreas)
Calaveras Public Utility District has contracted with Sutton Enterprises to begin replacing a section of aging water pipeline on Pixley Avenue in San Andreas beginning at the intersection of Court Street which will cause minor traffic delays in the area. This project is part of the District’s efforts in committing to replace and upgrade aging pipes throughout our distribution system.
Construction work will begin Monday, July 23, 2018. Customers will be kept informed by the contractor and weekly updates provided on the CPUD website at www.cpud.org.
Customers may experience short water service disruptions when the new pipeline is being connected to the system. If a planned water outage is necessary for the line replacement, door tag notices will be placed at the affected properties.
You may need to coordinate with the contractor entry/exit to your property during this time. Portions of the paved roadway impacted by construction will be returned to a condition as good as or better than prior to the project.
Most of the water distribution pipelines in the area are more than 40 (forty) years old and have degraded over time 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 reserves to fund Capital Replacement projects for the replacement of larger sections of pipeline that have frequent and costly maintenance demands.
