Hillcrest Water Update

Project Update 11-23-2020

Pump station

Major concrete work is completed for the pump station. The new pump station is scheduled to go into service in spring 2021. Paving in this area, as well as demolition of the old pump station, is scheduled for summer 2021.
 

Heavy machinery and equipment

Paving and other heavy machinery operations are nearing completion. There should be a significant reduction in heavy machinery and truck traffic early next year.
 

Access roads

Road paving was completed last week, including for the main entrance onto Happy Canyon Road. We will begin using the new road shortly for most facility traffic. Material delivery will go through the east gate entrance by the Canyon Club Condos.
 

Landscaping

Trees were delivered this week and we have begun planting along Happy Canyon Road and around the tanks. Within the next few weeks (weather permitting) a sprayed wood cover, called hydromulch, will be placed over the seeded areas. It will have a temporary green color, which is used during application to ensure consistent coverage. Erosion control blankets will be placed on the embankments for protection through the winter. The grass seed will sit dormant this winter and appear in the spring. The hydromulch and the blankets will dramatically reduce airborne dirt for the neighborhood.
We will hold off on planting the evergreens until spring to avoid the risk of winter die-off. Final landscaping around the pump station will not begin until construction of the building is completed next fall.

Fencing

The permanent fence is completed, and the new gates have been installed to both road access points. The blue mesh has been transferred to the permanent fencing.

Road sweeping

We have reduced the street sweeping on Happy Canyon Road to two times a week but will continue to sweep on additional days as needed.

Work hours

There will be no work at the Hillcrest site from Thursday Nov. 26 through the weekend in observance of Thanksgiving. Work will resume on Nov. 30, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. during the week, along with Saturdays when personnel will arrive at 7 a.m. and equipment use will begin at 8 a.m.  We do not anticipate working any Sundays for the foreseeable future. We appreciate your continued patience and understanding while we continue to upgrade this important part of your water distribution system.
