Night Work Begins at Harry Tracy

Night work begins this week at the Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant in Millbrae, with two shifts working 7 a.m. to 4 a.m.

The primary night activity will be welding. Night and early morning work will involve a small crew, with no large trucks or equipment active during the night shift.

Water treatment operations at the Harry Tracy Plant are currently shut down for a limited time to facilitate construction work. Normal 24 hours a day, 7 days a week treatment operations must resume within a few weeks to ensure system water deliveries. Managing effective, short operational shutdowns to reconfigure and relocate plant systems is one of the most complicated challenges for our contractors and operations staff!

Seismic and capacity upgrades will continue at existing buildings and facilities within the plant through 2015. The project is necessary to ensure water delivery following a major earthquake.

Truck traffic along Crystal Springs Road (near the plant and Junipero Serra County Park) will continue during the day, limited to 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. only.

Monitoring:
Noise levels will be monitored each night that work takes place to ensure compliance with local noise ordinances.

Our construction crews are also actively monitoring vibration, dust, and other potential disturbances caused by construction.
