Public Utilities: Lots going on this summer

-A A +A
By The Staff

The Department of Public Utilities doesn’t know the meaning of “summer vacation.”

Crews are out there nearly every day in the hot July sun, finishing up several infrastructure improvement projects currently underway in the county.

“The spring and summer construction season gives us a window for important infrastructure improvements that enable diversified choices for our community’s future,” said James Alarid, deputy utilities manager for Engineering at the DPU. “We prioritize the Department of Public Utilities projects across our four divisions – electric, water, natural gas, and wastewater – based on multiple weighted factors, such as confluence with other county projects to help us minimize disruption, and the condition assessment of each infrastructure item indicating its longevity, adequacy and reliability.”

Here’s the short list the department released of selected infrastructure improvement projects currently underway or scheduled to begin shortly.
