Water Main Replacement Project - Ocean View, S. Branciforte, Caledonia, Windsor and Windham
The City of Santa Cruz Water Department has contracted with Monterey Peninsula Engineering (MPE) to replace the water main under the portions of Ocean View, S. Branciforte, Caledonia, Windsor, and Windham Streets. As part of the Water Department’s ongoing main replacement program, deteriorated and/or deficient mains in the water system are replaced based on such factors as leak history, pipe condition, water quality, and flow improvement. Overall construction activities will take place from May 29, 2013 through September 2013, excluding weekends and holidays. While every attempt will be made to keep the construction disturbance to a minimum, you may experience traffic delays, restricted street parking, and increased noise during regular business hours, as well as short scheduled periods of no water service. The contractor and the City will make every effort to give you 24 hours advance notice of any non-emergency water shut down that may be necessitated by the construction. For additional information, contact Project Engineer Ryan Ernst at 831/420-5429 or email. Additional project information can be viewed by clicking on the more info link below.

Recoating and Repair of DeLaveaga Tank No. 1
The City of Santa Cruz Water Department contracted with Farr Synthetic Coatings to repair and recoat the west DeLaveaga water storage tank. Work will include making repairs to the roof, removing both interior and exterior coatings, and recoating the tank. Sandblasting and coating operations will occur within a humidity-controlled containment system that completely envelops the entire tank. While every attempt will be made to keep construction disturbance to a minimum, area residents may experience traffic delays when materials are delivered to the site as well as increased construction noise during the day. The dehumidification system will run continuously once work inside the containment system is underway. Construction is anticipated to begin in late March 2013 and last for approximately 6 months. Additional project information can be viewed by clicking the two links below.
April 24, 2013 update: The primer paint coat has been installed on the exterior roof and crews are moving to the tank interior. Interior sandblasting efforts are scheduled to begin on Monday, April 29. The dehumidification system will commence with this work and will continue running throughout the remainder of the project.

Beltz Well No. 12 Project
The Beltz Well No. 12 and associated treatment facilities would be installed on a vacant lot located at the northeast corner of the intersection of Research Park Drive and Cory Street in Soquel, California. (APN 030-18-170) The site is currently vacant and undeveloped. Beltz Well No. 12 would be drilled to an approximate depth of 320 feet below ground surface to provide up to approximately 700 GPM of water. Pumping from Beltz Well No. 12 could be required for a period of up to seven months, corresponding to approximately April 15 to November 15. Production from Beltz Well No. 12 would not increase the City’s long term historic Purisima groundwater extraction, but would instead redistribute a portion of existing City production inland to protect the aquifer from seawater intrusion.
