Harry Tracy Update

On Wednesday, July 23rd, concrete trucks will use Millbrae’s Helen Drive to enter the plant between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Our neighbors on Helen can expect several truck trips per hour during that time, as workers place concrete at the Meter Vault just inside the Helen Gate. Traffic control flaggers will be present on Helen Drive to ensure safety.

Swing Shift Resumes on July 21
Beginning this Monday evening, July 21st, night work will take place at the plant from 6 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Work will be performed overnight inside the new 11 million gallon Treated Water Reservoir. Neighbors of the plant are unlikely to hear indoor work. However, OSHA regulations (federal and state Occupational Safety and Health Administration) require backup alarms on small trucks and other vehicles that workers use during the swing shift.

On Wednesday evening, July 23rd, night work will continue outdoors to complete the 78 inch treated water pipeline that will carry drinking water to our wholesale customers. The pipeline crosses the main road inside the plant. Construction in this area must take place overnight in order to allow for normal plant activities during the day.

These projects are scheduled to take approximately six weeks. Swing shifts will be necessary periodically through December 2014.

Noise monitors will be present every night to ensure compliance with local laws. Please call us 24-hours a day at (866) 973-1476 with any questions or concerns.
