Greetings Residents of Redwood Estates,
West Valley Construction, on behalf of San Jose Water Company, will be installing a new water main and services on the following streets: Madrone Drive (Pavilion to R.E. Store), Broadway Rd., Laverne Dr., Patricia Ct., Judith Ct., Mt. View Ct., and Locust Ct. beginning on or near June 5th
Utility owners will mark the location of existing underground utilities with white markings. We will begin potholing to dig down and verify the depth and location of any utilities that may be present. All trenches and potholes will be backfilled or covered with steel trench plates at the end of each day.
This process will take several weeks to complete. We will send out a map showing our starting location with highlighted roads
that will be affected to allow residents/business owners to plan accordingly. Access in-and-out of your homes will be granted as needed – for narrow roads, there will be times during the day that certain areas are not accessible.
The project work hours are limited to 8AM-6PM Monday through Thursday. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding.
Water services will not be interrupted during the installation process over the next several months. However, once this project is near completion, and the new water main is activated, we will need to switch your water service connection to the new water main
. This process will require your water service s be turned off for a period of 6-8 hours. Residents affected by this new water main connection will be notified at least 72-hours before the interruption.
Please, be on the lookout for updates in the coming weeks as we look forward to getting this project underway.
