|The City of San Diego (the city) is starting the construction of the 30th Street Pipeline Replacement A Project. The City has more than 3,250 miles of water pipeline to provide services to its businesses and residences. Some pipelines are more than 100 years old, deteriorating, and in need of replacement, repair, and upgrades. To avoid future service disruptions, such as water main breaks, the aging pipelines are being replaced or rehabilitated. The new pipelines will bring the existing water mains up to modern standards, accommodate community growth, and reduce maintenance requirements.
The project will replace approximately 1,300 lineal feet (LF) of existing 12-inch water main with new 16-inch water main and installation of 300 LF of new 16-inch water main along University Avenue between Oregon Street and 30th Street.
This project will provide a more reliable water supply and operational flexibility. The project will use best management practices (BMPs) for storm drain inlet protection, and restoration of disturbed areas to their original condition. The contractor will resurface streets impacted by construction activities. The project will improve the quality of life in these communities and make the best use of taxpayer funds.
