BACKYARD WATER MAINS/ SERVICES REPLACEMENT PROJECT
The Elk Grove Water District (EGWD) recently began the Backyard Water Mains/ Services Replacement Project. This project replaces existing 4-inch water mains with larger diameter water mains and relocates the water mains from the backyard public utilities easements to rights-of-ways in the streets. Water services will be moved from the backyards to the fronts sides of homes.
If you have any questions regarding the Backyard Water Mains/ Services Replacement Project, please call our office at 916-685-3556.
SERVICE LINE REPLACEMENT PROJECT
The EGWD recently completed the Service Line Replacement Project. The project replaced old service lines with new service lines between the water mains and meters.
KENT ST. WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT PROJECT
The EGWD recently installed a new 10-inch diameter water main along Kent St. This water main replaces the previous water main which was old and undersized (4-inch diameter). As part of this project, new service lines were installed to each parcel on Kent St.
BUSINESS CENTER/CSD BLDG WATER MAIN LOOPING
The EGWD installed a new water main loop near the Business Center and Cosumnes Community Services District (CSD) Administration Building. This project improves water system performance and water quality.
RAILROAD CORRIDOR WATER LINE
The EGWD completed the installation of a transmission main along the railroad corridor in October 2016. The transmission main connects the Railroad Street Water Treatment Facility with the south side of EGWD’s water distribution system in the Hampton Village area. This project enhances EGWD’s water distribution system by facilitating the movement of treated water to areas of demand.
COLTON/ORTON WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT PROJECT
The EGWD recently completed the installation of a new 8-inch diameter water main along Colton Ave. and Orton St. This water main replaces the previous water main which was old and undersized (4-inch diameter). As part of this project, new service lines were installed to each parcel on Colton Ave. and Orton St.
HAMPTON VILLAGE WATER TREATMENT PLANT REFURBISHMENT PROJECT
The EGWD refurbished the Hampton Village Water Treatment Plant (WTP). This project reactivated the Hampton Village WTP which was shutdown in 2008. The Hampton Village WTP provides an additional 1,000 gallons per minute of water to EGWD's source capacity, and improves the reliability of the water system by providing redundancy to the Railroad Street Water Treatment Facility.
METER RETROFIT PROJECT
Since 1992, State law has required the installation of a water meter as part of any new construction. AB 2572, passed in 2004, requires all unmetered buildings to be retrofitted with water meters by 2025. EGWD completed the installation of water meters in all commercial and residential properties in February, 2015.
