(Apple Valley) — Two water service projects by Apple Valley Ranchos Water Co. are underway to further improve the quality of water service, as well as the fire-fighting capabilities, in Apple Valley.
The Nanticoke Road project has begun with an expected completion date of November 13th, at a cost of approximately $475,000. The project will replace 3,168 feet of 8-inch pipe, 1,202 feet of 6-inch pipe, and add six fire hydrants and 45 new services. By replacing water mains that were installed in 1957, the replacement and upsizing will improve system reliability and performance, as well as improve fire protection capabilities.
For the Seneca Road project, Ranchos Water is replacing 200 feet of 4-inch steel main with 12-inch ductile iron pipe and adding 610 feet of 12-inch main, as well as installing a fire hydrant on Seneca Road. This replacement and addition of the new 12-inch main will improve system circulation and system performance, and the new fire hydrant will be placed in a position to improve fire-fighting capabilities. This project started on September 21st and will take approximately two weeks to complete, at a cost of $140,000.
