Pipeline Shutdown Work Begins This Weekend near Polhemus Road in San Mateo

Starting on or around Monday, January 17th, 2011, the contractor will perform critical work to connect the New Crystal Springs Bypass Pipeline to our larger water system. These important pipeline connection activities at the South Shaft site near Polhemus Road will require crews to work up to 24 hours a day, 7 days per week for approximately 3 weeks to complete this critical work as quickly as possible. Neighbors may experience some noise from the crane and equipment.

Tunnel ventilation equipment, including an air compressor, will be in use at the South Shaft during the day on Sunday, January 16th. A small crew will be on site most of the day on Sunday.

Additional environmental training focused on minimizing noise, especially at nighttime, was conducted for all workers on site.

We do not anticipate any interruption to your water service. This important work is necessary to connect pipelines for your water supply.
