SUBJECT:    CONSTRUCTION ALERT 4794A Reclaimed Water Pipeline Extension

Project Description/Location:

The Reclaimed Water Pipeline Extension Project will be an installation of approximately 9,000 feet of reclaimed water main pipeline, along with the required vaults, valves, appurtenances and metering equipment. The work will connect the existing reclaimed water main, located at the intersection of Hopkins Drive and Voigt Drive, to the Central Utilities Plant (CUP) near the intersection of Scholars Drive South and Gilman Drive. The water will be used in the cooling towers, resulting in a potable water savings of 300,000 gallons per day. The project also includes installing pipe to locations of major irrigation usage in preparation for retrofit projects to convert the irrigation systems to reclaimed water.

The pipe will be installed using horizontal directional drilling and open trenching. There will be trucks and heavy construction equipment, fencing and traffic control in localized areas where drilling, trenching and the vault installation are occurring, including the staging and fusing of the 12-inch pipe which will be pulled into the drilled alignment.

Immediate Street Traffic, Bike Lane and Pedestrian Impacts:

On or about September 29, 2014, construction activities will begin in the northern area of the project. Generally, construction will occur from the northern end of the project to the south. Impacts will include lane and sidewalk closures. Please be aware of and obey signage and flagman directions.
