California Water Service Completes Water System Upgrade in Los Altos

LOS ALTOS, Calif.— California Water Service (Cal Water) has completed a water main replacement project in its Los Altos District that will strengthen water system reliability, infrastructure resiliency, and fire protection in the area.

Crews installed about 2,200 feet of new 8-inch water main on Covington Road, from Miramonte Avenue to Spencer Way, in the city of Los Altos and installed eight new fire hydrants in the area.

"At Cal Water, we're committed to ensuring our water system remains reliable, both for everyday and emergency needs, and we're pleased to complete this major infrastructure improvement project," said District Manager Ron Richardson. "With this water system upgrade, our customers will continue to receive the water they need when they need it, and our firefighters will have the resources they need to protect our community."

Cal Water serves approximately 70,000 people through 18,900 service connections in the Los Altos area and about 2 million people through 480,300 service connections in California. The utility has provided water service in the area since 1931. Additional information may be obtained online at
