Cal Water Completes Water Infrastructure Improvement Project to Strengthen Water System Reliability for Salinas
SALINAS, Calif.—California Water Service (Cal Water) has completed a water main replacement project in northern Salinas that will strengthen water system reliability and infrastructure resiliency for customers' everyday needs and firefighters' emergency needs.
The project included the installation of approximately 2,600 feet of new 8-inch water pipe. Crews also replaced six fire hydrants and 64 individual customer service connections. Installation took place on:
- Rosarita Drive, from East Bernal Road to St. Brendan Street
- Sorrentini Street, from Natividad Road to Granada Avenue
- St. Francis Way, from Rosarita Drive to Sorrentini Street
"Our crews are committed to ensuring that a reliable supply of safe, clean water remains accessible both to Salinas residents for their household needs and for the emergency needs of first responders," said Interim District Manager Marc Bloom. "We thank our customers and neighbors for their patience during construction as we worked to improve the water system—improvements that will benefit them for decades to come."
Cal Water serves about 123,200 people through 31,600 service connections in the Salinas Valley and about 2 million people through 492,600 service connections in California.
