TDPUD Pipeline Construction for 2015

Construction to take place in Tahoe Donner Summer 2015

Download a full size version of this map.

In 1927, the Truckee Donner Public Utility District (TDPUD) was formed to provide electrical service to the Truckee area. In 1935, TDPUD began providing water service with the purchase of the McGlashen water system. TDPUD’s water system has expanded over the years with the construction of new subdivisions throughout Truckee.

The water system in Tahoe Donner was installed in the early 1970s when the subdivision was originally constructed. Unfortunately, the construction practices employed by the companies performing the water pipeline installation were not proper. As a result, the pipelines experienced accelerated deterioration, with numerous leaks as the result. Leaks not only waste water, they also waste the electricity needed to pump water up to Tahoe Donner.

A properly installed water pipeline should last between 50 and 75 years. However, the Tahoe Donner water system began leaking almost immediately and has gotten worse over time. Beginning in 1985, the District has been actively installing replacement pipelines. About 68 miles of water pipeline exists throughout the Tahoe Donner subdivision. To date, about 35 miles of pipeline have needed to be replaced.

TDPUD plans to replace about 4,900 feet of pipeline at three separate locations along Northwoods Boulevard during the summer of 2015. The locations the work will take place this year are shown on the above map. This work has been coordinated with a Town of Truckee project to resurface Northwoods Boulevard. In addition to the pipeline replacement work, the TDPUD will also be performing some minor excavations along Northwoods Boulevard associated with the district’s internal communication network.

The pipeline project will be performed by a private contractor selected by the district through a public bidding process. The work will start in May and should be completed in September of this year. The district will work diligently to minimize any inconvenience and disruption this construction may cause. It is important to note that TDPUD’s water production is down over 30 percent since 2006 and fixing leaks is a major contributor to this success.

Any questions regarding this project should be directed to the TDPUD’s Water System Engineer, Neil Kaufman at 530-582-3950 or, or to TDPUD’s Public Information Officer, Steven Poncelet at 530-582-3951 or
