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.

Construction of 8-inch Water Main on the 2800, 2900, 3000, and 3100 Block of Los Olivos Lane, Project E-1033

Update (April 6, 2022):  The water main replacement project on Los Olivos Lane will continue into early May 2022. Construction on Los Olivos Lane between Pennsylvania Ave. and La Crescenta Ave. is underway and will continue into May. Current work includes fire hydrant and water service line installations. In late May, this will be followed by “tie-ins” (connecting the new water main to the existing water main at multiple locations). There will be short periods when water must be shut off (details to follow in the next update.) Affected residents will be notified before a water shut-off. Temporary traffic control, traffic delays, and minor delays are expected to continue during working hours.

 

Crescenta Valley Water District (CVWD) will be replacing approximately 3,400 feet of water pipeline as part of CVWD's FY 21/22 Capital Improvement Program.

 

The project will replace old 6-inch water pipelines on the 2800-3100 blocks of Los Olivos Ln. between Pennsylvania Ave. and La Crescenta Avenue with new 8-inch diameter water pipelines. The water pipelines were initially installed in the 1950s and 1940s. Since then, the pipelines have developed numerous leaks necessitating the replacements.

In the interest of public safety, and since the pipelines have deteriorated beyond their useful life, the District will replace them as part of CVWD's ongoing pipeline replacement program. For the exact location, see the project location map.

 

Construction Schedule:

  • March 8, 2022 - Start of construction
  • July 1, 2022 - Estimated end of construction

 

Access will be provided for emergencies, mail delivery, and trash services, and residents will have access to their properties. CVWD advises that residents avoid traveling through the construction zone whenever possible. CVWD will provide an updated construction schedule via CVWD's website (www.cvwd.com) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/CrescentaValleyWaterDistrict) to better inform the community of the construction activities as the project progresses.

 

As in most construction projects, this work will create a certain amount of unavoidable public inconvenience such as:

· A period of time, usually between 6 to 8 hours, when the water service to your home will be shut down. The shutdown will occur when the contractor ties the new water pipeline into the existing water pipeline. The District will send another letter regarding the contractor's construction schedule and the anticipated shutdown date. In addition, CVWD will notify each resident a minimum of 48 hours before the actual shutdown, with a door hanger indicating the shutdown date and time.

· The contractor will install temporary parking and traffic restrictions along Los Olivos Lane, Cloud Avenue, Ramsdell Avenue, Glenwood Avenue, Dyer Avenue, and La Crescenta Avenue. This will allow the contractor's crew to work safely and expeditiously to complete the project. "Temporary No Parking" signs will be posted a minimum of 30 hours before construction. The District asks that you observe these signs and any other traffic control. Driveways within the construction zone may be temporarily restricted due to the construction. CVWD's on-site inspector and the contractor will assist you with access into and out of your driveway.

 

Your cooperation in making this project successful will be greatly appreciated. Additional information will be updated periodically on CVWD's website.

Rehabilitation of Edmund No. 2 Reservoir, Project E-1036

As part of CVWD's ongoing reservoir maintenance program, the Edmund No. 2 water storage tank is being rehabilitated after having provided decades of service. The improvements to the 500,000-gallon steel water storage tank are necessary to extend its operating life as a source of drinking water, ensure the reservoir's structural integrity, and increase its durability for years to come.

 

The Contractor, J. Colon Inc., began construction in December 2021. The 500,000-gallon storage tank was taken out of service while welding, and other internal and external steel components of the structure were repaired. As of today, all structural repairs have been completed. A new phase of the project consisting of interior roof and exterior shell sandblasting will begin next week. The entire tank will be wrapped with a thick white plastic enclosure in the coming weeks. Workers will be constructing the containment system around the water tank to conceal and contain the sandblasting and painting.

 

Workers are scheduled to be onsite Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. The water service to residents will not be interrupted during construction.

 

Lastly, we anticipate completing the rehabilitation work in the spring of 2022.

Construction of the Anderson W. Clark Magnet High School Fire Service Line, Project D-21-G2

(May 13, 2022):  Crescenta Valley Water District (CVWD) has awarded a construction contract to Carney Engineering Construction of Torrance for an upcoming improvement project in your neighborhood as part of the upgrades to Anderson W. Clark Magnet High School (Clark) in collaboration with Glendale Unified School District (GUSD). Clark is constructing a new robotics laboratory building and needs a new 8-inch pipeline from CVWD's water system on the 4800 block of Cloudsdale Avenue (see project location map on reverse side) to provide additional fire protection.

 

Construction Schedule:

  • May 16, 2022 – Start of construction
  • Early July – Estimated end of construction

 

Access will be provided for emergency, mail delivery, and trash services. Residents will have access to their properties. CVWD advises that residents avoid traveling through the construction zone whenever possible. CVWD will provide an updated construction schedule via CVWD's website (www.cvwd.com) to better inform residents of construction activities as the project progresses.

 

As in most construction projects, this work will create a certain amount of unavoidable public inconvenience.

 

 Reminders:

  • Construction will generate intermittent noise throughout the project. We apologize for the unavoidable noise. Sound readings will be monitored periodically to ensure the contractor stays within allowable levels.
  • Most construction is between 7:30 am to 4:00 pm on weekdays. A notice will be sent to residents in advance to inform residents of any change in construction hours. Our construction crew will do their best to minimize disruption outside of these hours. 

 

Your cooperation in making this project successful will be greatly appreciated. Additional information will be updated periodically on CVWD's website.
