A major Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) infrastructure project is scheduled to begin Monday, May 9, 2022, along Arroyo Parkway.
By News Desk
The project will replace an existing 90-year-old, 8-inch water main, to increase the reliability and quality of water service. Construction work will span from Glenarm St. to Cordova St., and is expected to be completed in June 2023.
During the project, residents and businesses located between Glenarm and Cordova may be impacted. Construction work will be contained to approximately one block at a time between Glenarm and Cordova Streets to help minimize any impacts.
Construction will intermittently affect water service. Notices of any water interruptions will be given at least 48 hours in advance. Efforts will be taken to keep such inconveniences to a minimum.
Work will occur Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Crews will use a variety of heavy equipment including excavators, backhoes, loaders, and construction trucks, which may cause additional noise and dust in the area. Signs and delineators will be used to minimize the impact of traffic flow along Arroyo Parkway. At least one driving lane will be accessible in both directions, and access to driveways will be provided. Please observe and adhere to posted no parking zones, construction signs, and traffic flaggers.
Interim General Manager Jeffrey Kightlinger said:
This much-needed capital investment project will help to ensure PWP maintains overall reliability and quality of water service that customers expect and deserve.
PWP is a community-owned, not-for-profit utility and reinvests revenue generated to provide vital services and infrastructure improvements to serve our customers. Projects like this help ensure the long-term health and safety of our water and community.
Residents can call PWP Water Distribution at (626) 744-4456 for more information and visit the project website for periodic updates.
