CSPL2 Nearly Complete - Steel Plates to be Removed Soon!
The Crystal Springs Pipeline No. 2 (CSPL2) Replacement Project is nearing substantial completion! Crews are expected to reach this milestone this November. This means that the contractor will have successfully installed more than three miles of new pipeline along El Camino Real before the Thanksgiving holiday weekend! This also means that steel plates along El Camino Real will be removed.
When all pipeline installation work is completed, pipeline service work will follow just after the Thanksgiving weekend. This work requires the SFPUC Water Operations Team to begin flushing and cleaning the newly-rehabilitated pipeline just before it is put back into service. Once crews successfully fill the pipeline, they will begin disinfection work which is a nearly automated activity 24 hours a day. This work will last approximately two weeks. This work will not increase noise levels or impact local traffic. Water service to your home will NOT be interrupted.
To avoid disrupting the holiday shopping season, final road restoration on El Camino Real in the Burlingame area is scheduled for January 2013. Final completion for the project is anticipated for late January 2013.
