Mt Davidson Pump Station Making Progress

The new water pumping station on Agua Way is making progress and the project team hopes to complete the project before the end of the year.

The new terracotta roof in nearly complete and the building will be painted soon.

The street work on Agua Way in front of the pump station will start up again around September 8th with Water Dept crews welding the pipes and finishing connections. The project team will make sure the plates on Agua are secured so not to cause noise from car traffic.
We realize the area does not look great due to the staging area and storage boxes but it is temporary and the materials will move soon - we promise. We apologize for the inconvenience.

New Fence and Landscaping at Stanford Heights Reservoir

The contractor is making progress on the installation of the new fence around Stanford Heights Reservoir. We expect the reservoir project to be complete in early fall.

Several neighbors have voiced concerns about the height of the fence. The ten-foot fence is required by Homeland Security due to the fact this is a drinking water reservoir.

Landscaping work is taking place with the installation of many native, low-water-use plants and bushes.

As we near completion, we will install additional landscaping in front of the blue valves on Agua Way. Once landscaping is complete, we will paint the blue valves a better color so they blend into the hillside and tunnel. The nearby building to the left of the valves will also be repainted a similar color to the new pump station on Agua Way.

We expect the new pump station to be complete in December or early January.
