(Apple Valley) – Liberty Utilities Apple Valley (Liberty Apple Valley) will break ground on a $1.1 million infrastructure improvement project in the vicinity of Rancherias Road, north of Otoe Road, the week of June 5, 2017. The three-month project to update the local water system will ensure Liberty Apple Valley can continue providing safe, reliable water service to customers in that area for generations to come.
“We are excited to begin work on this project, which is critical to ensure water provided to customers for drinking and fire protection is never compromised.” said Tony Penna, Vice President and General Manager for Liberty Apple Valley. “We are working closely with customers to limit any inconvenience, and appreciate the neighborhood’s patience while we complete this important project.”
The project includes replacing approximately 6,700 feet (1.3 miles) of aging water main and installation of 12 new valves, 10 fire hydrants, eight air vacuums and 63 service lines along the new pipeline. The majority of construction will occur along Rancherias Road; however, crews will also be working at times on Plaina Road, Yuma Road, Piru Road, Shenandoah Road and Serrano Road.
Customers who may be impacted by temporary service interruptions during construction will be notified directly at least 24 hours prior by Liberty Apple Valley. When requested in advance by customers, Liberty Apple Valley will be providing complimentary bottled water prior to any scheduled service interruptions to limit any inconvenience. In areas where traffic may be impacted by construction, traffic flaggers will be present during work hours for the safety of work crews and the public.
Customers are asked to call Project Manager Mike Lent directly at 760-240-8317 with any questions or concerns, or if they would like to request bottled water in advance of a scheduled service interruption.
