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 12-inch Water Main on the 2600-2700 Blocks of Orange Avenue & 6-inch Water Main on the 5000 Block of El Adobe Lane, Project E-1046

August 3, 2022

Crescenta Valley Water District (CVWD) will be replacing approximately 2,500 feet of water pipeline as part of CVWD's FY 22/23 Capital Improvement Program.

The project will replace old 6-inch and 12-inch water pipelines on the 2600-2700 blocks of Orange Ave. and the 5000 blocks of El Adobe Lane, with new 6-inch and 12- inch diameter water pipelines.  These water pipelines were originally installed in the1940s and 1950s. Since then, the pipelines have developed numerous leaks necessitating their 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.

For the exact location, see the project location map on page 2 of this notice.

DESIGN PHASE SCHEDULE (As of August 3, 2022):

September 2022 – Investigative excavation to locate underground utilities and design

November 2022 – 100% Submittal review

January 2023 – Advertise for Bids

February 14, 2023 – Award Contract


June 12, 2023 - Anticipated start of construction

October 16, 2023 - Estimated end of construction

Residents will have access to their properties at all times except for a short period while the contractor installs the pipeline directly in front of each driveway. Access for emergency vehicles, mail delivery, and trash services will be maintained at all times. CVWD advises that residents avoid traveling through the construction zone whenever possible. CVWD will provide an updated construction schedule via CVWD’s website ( and on Facebook ( 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:

·    There will be a period of time, usually between 6 to 8 hours, when the water service to your home will be shut down.  This will occur when the contractor ties the new water pipeline into the existing water distribution system.  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 that indicates the date and time of the shutdown.

·     The contractor will be installing temporary parking and traffic restrictions along Orange Avenue, El Adobe Lane, La Crescenta Avenue and Rosemont Avenue. This will allow the contractor’s crew to work in a safe and expeditious manner to complete the project. Temporary “No Parking" signs will be posted a minimum of 24 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.

·    The construction project will also affect school traffic at Monte Vista Elementary and Rosemont Middle Schools. To ensure student safety we suggest allowing extra time for school drop-off and pick-up procedures. Coordination with each campus will be maintained throughout the duration of the construction project to ensure the latest updates reach school staff and parents.


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