Emergency Alert Program
As part of Crescenta Valley Water District’s (CVWD) strategic plan to increase Customer Awareness, Improve Service Offerings, and prioritize Emergency Preparedness, CVWD will use Everbridge.
The Everbridge emergency notification system allows CVWD to instantly send critical messages to residents and businesses across multiple communication devices, including cell phones, home phones, email, text messaging, fax, and more. To ensure that individuals receive time-sensitive, life-saving emergency information from the District residents, you must sign up and register your contact information.

Please be advised that on the morning of Wednesday, August 25, 2021, Crescenta Valley Water District and Brkich Construction of Monrovia will be performing a water main shutdown to abandon the old 2-inch water main and establish your service on the newly installed 6-inch water main on the 2700 block of Paraiso Way.
This work will result in a temporary interruption of water service at your address on Wednesday, August 25, 2021, between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM. Please plan for a temporary loss of water and accept our apology if this causes you any inconvenience. A door hanger notification will be delivered to all residents affected should any dates and times change.
We suggest that you draw water in advance of the shut-off time to supply ordinary needs. It is also advisable to store water in the bathtub for toilet flushing. In addition, after the water is back in service, we recommend that you turn on your water faucets slowly as there may be air trapped in your water line from recharging the water main in the street. The air should dissipate quickly, and water service restored back to normal. Lastly, it is suggested that you consult the User’s Manual for all appliances connected to your home’s plumbing system to ensure proper use after the water is back in service.
This work is all part of the District’s continuing effort to improve your water system. We ask for your cooperation and thank you for helping us to make this project a success.
If you have any questions or comments concerning this project, please contact me at (818) 236-4115 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

On May 20, 2021, Robert Brkich Construction broke ground on the 2800 block of El Caminito Street, 4800 block of Glenwood Avenue, 4800 block of Dyer Avenue, and the 2800 block of Stevens Street. The project will replace approximately 1,925 feet of old 4-inch water main and an additional 210 feet of old 2-inch water main on the 2700 block of Paraiso Way. The project aims to replace undersized aging pipes and provide improvements such as new 8-inch water mains, water services, valves, and fire hydrants.
Excavation on the 2800 block of El Caminito Street began on Tuesday, June 8, 2021, with intermittent lane closures while the Contractor installed the new water main. Excavation is scheduled through June, along with traffic restrictions. The Contractor will post temporary "No Parking" signs a minimum of two (2) days before construction. Driveways within the work area may be temporarily restricted due to construction. CVWD's on-site inspector and the Contractor will assist you with access into and out of your driveway.
Working hours are 7:30 am to 4:00 pm, although this can vary due to preparation time and individual project circumstances. Typically, construction work completed during a regular eight-hour shift will be paved and ready for traffic by the end of the shift.
Water service interruptions are typical during the construction of water mains. CVWD will mail shutdown notifications promptly to residents who will be affected.
The current project schedule is between June and September 30, 2021.
