In June 2018, California Water Service will begin replacing aging infrastructure by installing 7 miles of new drinking water pipeline to improve the reliability and safety of the drinking water system that serves all 90,000 of the Peninsula’s residents.
Currently, the majority of the Palos Verdes Peninsula is served by one drinking water pipeline that is more than 60 years old and a single pumping mechanism. In addition to the new drinking water pipelines, the project will add a second pumping mechanism on a separate electric grid. Combined, the drinking water pipelines and pump will help guard against the risk of prolonged water service outages caused by an aging infrastructure or natural disasters – and also improve drinking water service reliability for both everyday and emergency needs, ensuring the Peninsula is better prepared for the future.
Rados is excited to announce that Black & Veatch Construction , Inc has selected Rados for the following work packages of the Palos Verdes Peninsula Water Reliability project: Civil/Site Work at Pump Station, Concrete Work, Process Mechanical at Pump Station & Pipeline Installation. Black & Veatch has been selected by California Water Services Company as the progressive design-build contractor to implement reliability improvements to the Palos Verdes Potable Water System.
The project generally consists of construction of 7 miles of new 24” and 30” CML&C potable water pipelines in about 5 miles of trench and a new 3,000 sf, 10.5 MGD booster pump station with wet well and surge system. The contract is anticipated to be completed by September 2019.
