Water System Investments
Industry Public Utilities is committed to enhancing the condition of its water system through wise and sound investments in capital improvement projects. These investments will ensure that the water system will deliver high quality water to its customers long into the future.
 
Some of the recent water system investments include:
 

ACE Puente Avenue Grade Separation Project The ACE project is to make way for the designed underpass at Valley Blvd and Puente Avenue (Workman Mill Road). The Industry Public Utilities Water System (IPU) has an existing 16” ACP waterline in Valley Blvd and Workman Mill Road. This waterline is required to be relocated to allow room for relocations of the County’s storm drain and sewer lines that are in close proximity.

The relocation will require two phases of work. The first phase (Phase 1) includes the abandonment of a portion of the 16” waterline. This abandonment will allow for other utility relocation work to proceed without the danger of failure of the 16” waterline during construction. The customers of the IPU served by this waterline will experience only temporary interruption of service during the Phase 1 work. Once the other utility relocation work is complete, Phase 2 of the relocation work will be performed. Phase 2 includes reconstructing the 16” waterline, using 16” ductile iron pipe, along a similar alignment and placing the waterline back into service.

Service Line Replacements - Throughout the water system, water meter service connections (service lines) installed decades ago, were constructed with materials that have a higher tendency to leak compared to materials used for new service installations. Over the last few years approximately130 service lines have been replaced with new copper service lines. These improvements reduces the amount of leaks that will need to be repaired, improves service reliability and saves water.
