Construction of 8-Inch Water Main On the 2400-2500 Blocks Of Janet Lee Dr. and 4300 Block Of Rosemont Ave., Project E-1008
Construction on the 8-inch Water Main Replacement Project on Janet Lee Drive launched on December 1, 2020, and is scheduled to continue through June 2021. To date, the crews have excavated both connection points at Briggs Avenue and Rosemont Avenue, and they have sawcut approximately three hundred and fifty linear feet (350LF) of the trench. Currently, the project is on hold until the week of March 8, 2021. Brkich Construction will resume construction activity with 8-inch pipe deliveries being made through much of the day.
The construction route begins on Rosemont Avenue and continues east on Janet Lee Drive to its end at Briggs Avenue. Construction is expected to be completed in June 2021.
Additional traffic safety measures will be in place starting the week of March 8, 2021. Please drive with caution.

Rehabilitation of Rosemont Reservoir, Project E-1018
(April 1, 2021)
Rosemont Reservoir Construction Update
The rehabilitation of Rosemont Reservoir began last Fall and is well underway. This massive structure has not been rehabilitated in over 20 years, and though the tank is starting to show signs of aging, its structural integrity has not been compromised over the years.
Crosno Construction is currently in phase II of the rehabilitative process, including sandblasting, stripping, and adding primer coats to both the inside and outside of the tank. Coating the exterior surface of the 500,000 Gallon Welded Steel Water Storage Reservoir required the construction of a plastic enclosure to protect local residents from potential debris, paint, and fumes. Phase II began in early January 2021.
The 500,000-gallon reservoir rehabilitation project is midway through its construction phase, with most of its heavy construction completed. The project is estimated to be completed by the week of May 3, 2021.
Construction of 8-Inch Water Main On the 3400 and 3500 Blocks of Encinal Ave, Project No. E-1021
(April 1, 2021)
Crescenta Valley Water District (CVWD) will be replacing approximately 1,600 feet of water pipeline as part of CVWD's FY 20/21 Capital Improvement Program.
The project will replace old 8-inch water pipelines on the 3400-3500 blocks of Encinal Ave. with new 8-inch diameter water pipelines. These water pipelines were initially installed in the 1950s and 1930s. 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 be replacing the pipelines as part of CVWD's on-going pipeline replacement program.
The project is estimated to be competed by May 10, 2021.
