Winter Storm Season is Well Underway

By their nature, storms can cause damage in construction zones. Our management teams carefully plan for rain events and focus on safety needs for inclement weather. We take measures to protect work areas, and after rains we check for any necessary fixes.

As noted earlier, we are in the midst of a temporary "shut down" in regular plant operations at Harry Tracy. Night work, between 5:00 p.m. and 2:30 a.m., is taking place periodically through Monday, December 10th.

The plant is scheduled to be back in service by mid-December and must be capable of drawing water from the Crystal Springs system following heavy rainstorms this winter. We assure you, noise and vibration monitoring will take place during the evening shift although we do not anticipate disruptive activities.  

Please call us 24 hours a day at (866) 973-1476 if you have any questions or concerns.

Harry Tracy Night Work Starts November 7

Our contractor at the Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant will work evening shifts beginning on Wednesday, November 7 through Wednesday, November 21. This additional shift starts at 5:00 p.m. and will end by 2:30 a.m., weekdays only (Monday to Friday). Noise and vibration monitoring will take place during the evening shift to ensure compliance with legal limits.

Night work is anticipated periodically through Monday, December 10th, as the construction team takes advantage of a temporary "shut down" in plant operations. Crews will be preparing tunnels and transmission lines for upcoming concrete pours.

The Harry Tracy Water Treatment Plant is typically online during construction in order to draw raw water from the Crystal Springs Reservoir System and treat water for our wholesale customers. However, plant operations are occasionally shut down for designated short periods to allow for construction activities.  Double shifts or 24-hour work are often required during these shut downs. The plant is scheduled to be back in service by mid-December and will be capable of drawing water from the Crystal Springs system following the winter rains.

Please call us at (866) 973-1476 if you have any questions or concerns.
