ABOUT THIS PROJECT
The City’s Water Master Plan identified the need for a new water transmission main from Big Canyon Reservoir to the eastern side of Corona del Mar. The project provides more than 8,400 linear feet of new transmission line, from 30 inch to 12 inch cement mortar lined and tape wrapped or epoxy coated steel pipes, and relocation of a pressure regulation unit.
The CdM Water Transmission Main pipeline improvement was designed to provide significant benefits to the water delivery system, including:
Improves Supply Pressure
Increases Fire Flows for Better Safety
Provides Pipeline Redundancy
Improves Operation and Service Reliability
Construction occurred in multiple stages to minimize impacts to residents, businesses, and commuters. Traffic handling included night work and brief roadway closures to avoid disrupting traffic as much as possible and to ensure safe working conditions.
