Critical Water System Work in January 2012

Neighbors of San Andreas Lake, just west of Highway 280 near the town of San Bruno, may have noticed the Lake’s recent low water level. This reservoir is low due to Water System Improvement Program work – not due to recent dry weather. Despite the lack of rain so far this winter, our region’s reservoirs are still in good shape thanks to heavy rain last year. The water level is expected to remain low in San Andreas Lake until our water pipeline is returned to service in late March 2012.

Underwater construction at San Andreas Lake is part of the Crystal Springs/San Andreas Transmission System Upgrade project. This project currently has several work locations throughout the 23-acre Peninsula Watershed. On Monday morning, January 9th three sequential deliveries of large pipe will take place from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Crystal Springs Road in San Bruno just north of the Junipero Serra County Park and San Bruno City Park. Please call our 24-hour phone line if you have any concerns or questions!

Further south near Sawyer Camp Trail, crews will begin mobilizing equipment after the Martin Luther King holiday weekend in preparation for a “shutdown” of the water pipeline that runs next to the trail. Sawyer Camp Trail is expected to be open every day, sunrise to sunset, until the week of January 17th. We do expect a short trail closure that week or in late January. Please subscribe (see right) to receive an automatic email notification as soon as the exact closure dates are announced.
