Valve Replacement at South Gate Park

20” Valve Replacement at South Gate Park

The Public Works Water Division along with the contractor WA Rasic, will be working tonight, July 19th to replace a 20” water valve at South Gate Park.  The work will require water to be shut down and pressure to be lowered during the time frame from 10 PM to 6 AM.  The water outage will only impact the Park Auditorium for the duration of the work and the surrounding area will have the pressure lowered to safely perform the work.  Staff has proactively taken the following steps to minimize the impacts to the community: 

  • Scheduled work at night when records indicate demand is at the lowest. 
  • Installing line stops to minimize water outage impacts and ensure water is safely shut-off.
  • Systematically operated valves and pre-flushed water mains.  
  • Notified customers door to door within the impacted area. 
  • Notifications via website, social media, and email. 

The area of operation is between Southern Ave to the north, Tweedy Blvd to south, Pinehurst Ave. to east and Hildreth Ave. to west, which is located within Zone 10.  The attached map shows the location highlighted within Zone 10 in more detail. 

While all steps have been taken to reduce the chance of a customer experiencing a water discoloration episode, customers in the impacted area are strongly encouraged to not use water during these times to the extent possible.  Should you experience discolored water, we ask that you flush your own house pipes by running faucets for approximately 5 minutes or less.  This should dispel any such discolored water that by small chance got into your house or business water pipes.  Should you have continued water discoloration after flushing, please call our Public Works Department at 323-563-5790.
