The project will consist of replacing the existing 4” steel distribution water main within Cable Road, Alta Power House Road, and Timber (red line). The main has experienced several breaks throughout the years and is at the end of its useful life. The pipe that goes from Brown Road south east through several properties to Alta Bonnynook Road may be replaced by installing a main in Alta Power House Road (yellow line). All existing services will be replaced and/or reconnected.
A new water main (green) will also be installed along Cable Road beginning at the intersection of Cable Road and Timber Lane going east connecting to the existing 10” distribution main at the east end of Cable Road. A pressure reducing station (PRS) will be included to connect two distinct pressure zones. The purpose of the new line is to increase the reliability of service by providing redundancy to a portion of the system.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
What are surveyors doing in my area?
Surveyors will be in the neighborhood to begin work by collecting various points of interest (e.g. meter boxes, elevations, existing site improvements, etc.). This includes locating and identifying trees by tagging them with a unique ID tag.
Can I remove tree tags?
No please don’t; these will be critical through the design phase to accurately map the trees on the plans and identify them in the field during construction.
Will new fire hydrants be added?
Currently, hydrants are spaced more than 1,000 feet apart in this area. PCWA standards call for hydrants to be spaced at a maximum of 500 feet for residential areas, 350 feet for commercial and industrial areas. This will require the construction of new hydrants.
