After completing most of the service line relocations for its Monterey Peninsula Water Supply Project, California American Water (CAW) has embarked on the pipeline installation phase of the project. The $50 million pipeline, extending approximately seven miles from Seaside to Pacific Grove, will transport water from the Pure Water Monterey groundwater replenishment project and future desalination facility near Marina. The pipeline is scheduled to be completed by year end.
To get the word out about the project, CAW representatives held community meetings, presented at city council meetings and sent notifications to customers. Additionally, a flyover video of the pipeline’s location was posted on YouTube.
For updates and information on the pipeline installation schedule, traffic impacts and maps, customers can visit the project website, www.watersupplyproject.org/pipeline, and Facebook page, www.facebook.com/Monterey_Water, and also sign up for weekly email construction updates at http://www.watersupplyproject.org/contact.
