At its June 2 meeting, the Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) Board of Directors received an update from staff on projects funded under the Agency’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP). Over the past year, fifteen capital improvement projects have been underway, with a cost of over $15 million in construction contracts. Eight projects are complete, with seven still in progress.
Completed projects include two interties with neighboring water agencies. The Barton Road intertie connects PCWA to the San Juan Water District, and the Locksley Lane intertie connects PCWA to the Nevada Irrigation District. The interties allow the connected water agencies to share supplies, if necessary.
The Agency’s largest project, which is nearing completion, is the Rocklin Front Yard Main Replacement. PCWA installed two miles of new pipes and relocated over 260 water services within the Rocklin neighborhood in and around Casa Grande Avenue. PCWA finished repaving the streets at the end of May.
“Because PCWA’s water system CIP identifies and funds specific construction projects that either replace aging infrastructure or provide new infrastructure for the future, it is an essential component of providing reliable water service to our customers,” General Manager Einar Maisch said.
The next regular meeting of the PCWA Board of Directors will be held on Thursday, June 16, 2:00 PM at the PCWA Business Center, 144 Ferguson Road, in Auburn. PCWA board meetings are open to the public.
