Hillcrest Project Update

Project Update 01-22-2021

Pump station

Major concrete work has been completed for the pump station. Work on the roof should begin in February, and the mechanical and electrical work inside the pump station will ramp up in early spring. The pump station is expected to go into service in late spring. Paving in this area and demolition of the old pump station is scheduled for summer 2021.

Work hours

As we move into the spring, there will be fewer Saturdays during which work will be required to remain on schedule. When weekend work is needed, we will continue to use our weekend schedule, with personnel arriving at 7 a.m. and equipment use beginning at 8 a.m. We do not anticipate working any Sundays for the foreseeable future. Weekday working hours remain from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Access roads

Road paving has been completed and the entrance along Happy Canyon Road is now being used for the majority of traffic. Heavy machinery and semi-trucks will continue to use the access road on the east side of the site closest to the Canyon Club Condos to avoid damaging the new paving.


Most of the landscaping has been completed, including most tree planting, sodding and seeding. Final landscaping around the site and new pump station will be completed this spring and upcoming fall when the new pump station is complete.

Dust mitigation

We are continuing concrete flatwork at the site, which will reduce the amount of dust in the area, and have finished paving. We will continue to have multiple water trucks on-site spraying as needed to mitigate dust issues in the area as long as it is needed.

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.

We appreciate your continued patience and understanding while we work to upgrade this important part of your water distribution system.
