A noise monitor will be present to ensure compliance with local limits. Saturday work hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. No work is scheduled for Sunday.
Helen Drive in Millbrae
From March 10th through 14th, crews for the Crystal Springs/San Andreas Transmission System upgrade project will seismically reinforce a tunnel at San Andreas Lake.
Limited truck hauling is planned on Helen Drive to deliver materials via the Helen Gate entrance. Approximately 10 round trips per day are expected during the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. Flaggers will be present to ensure safety.
This month marks our sixth full plant shutdown since the project began in March 2011.
The plant is typically online in order to draw raw water from the Crystal Springs Reservoir System and treat water for our wholesale customers. Plant operations are occasionally “shut down” for designated short periods to allow for intensive construction.
Evening shifts and night work are not currently planned, but could be scheduled any time between now and April 1st. The project work hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday to Friday, and Saturdays 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
You may notice increased daytime work during this period. If a night shift is scheduled, the project team will make every effort to keep activities limited to indoor work. Please subscribe (see right) to this site for automatic schedule updates.
Please call us 24 hours a day at (866) 973-1476 with any questions or concerns.
