California Water Service Completes Generator Installation Project in Livermore to Improve System Reliability
LIVERMORE, Calif. — California Water Service (Cal Water) has completed installation of a new emergency generator in southern Livermore, enhancing water system reliability and fire protection to area customers. The infrastructure improvement project will enable the local station on Geneva Street to continue to run in the event of a power outage and ensure customers do not experience a water service interruption if an outage occurs.
"Cal Water is committed to being a good neighbor and responsible water utility by investing prudently in our water infrastructure," District Manager Frank Vallejo said. "This important upgrade will ensure we are able to provide a reliable supply of high-quality water to our Livermore customers and sufficient resources for firefighters, both for everyday needs and during any emergencies for decades to come."
The generator installation is the final phase of the station's rebuild. Other improvements, including a new pump building, booster pumps, electrical panel board, and monitoring equipment, were completed in 2016.
Cal Water serves approximately 59,000 people through 18,800 service connections in Livermore and about two million people through 484,900 service connections in California. The utility has provided water service in the area since 1927. Additional information may be obtained online at www.calwater.com.
