Ridgewood Water Transmission Line Improvement

Ridgewood Pipeline Project

The Ridgewood Water Transmission Line Improvement project will eliminate two water tanks that are in poor and failing condition, consolidate two water treatment plants, four pump stations, and the costs associated with operation and maintenance of those facilities. This consolidation project includes installing approximately 13,000 lineal feet of 8-inch C900 main pipeline, strategically located pressure reducing stations from an upper connection point located on Ridgewood Drive and terminating at a downstream connection point on Meadow Brook Drive near the District’s existing Scenic View Water Treatment Plant.

 With the completion of this project, the District will be able to deliver water from the Twain Harte area all the way to the Sonora area. The new water main line will serve as the water transmission line interconnecting the Upper Basin/Crystal Falls and Phoenix Lake/Scenic View water systems and has the potential to provide potable water service to all adjacent parcels along Phoenix Lake Road. The first phase of the project from Meadow Brook Drive to Resort Road is expected to be complete by the beginning of June.

 “TUD has a responsibility and commitment to address aging facilities, reduce water loss and improve efficiencies. When this project is finally complete, the District will reduce its number of water treatment plants by two and remove two aging water tanks from service. Furthermore, it will reduce future operation and maintenance costs, and capital improvement costs for facility replacement,” states Don Perkins, General Manager.
