Truckee Donner PUD Pipeline Construction for Summer 2013
Truckee Donner PUD is contracting for water mainline replacements in the Tahoe Donner Area this summer (see map below). Work will begin in early May and will run through the summer construction period.
The work will begin on the Northwoods at Coyote Moon section as per the contract documents. The rest of the schedule will be discussed with the contractor at an upcoming pre-construction meeting once the contract documents are in place. The work will be sequential moving from one location to another so only one area will be impacted at a time.
The Truckee Donner PUD has undertaken this water mainline replacement project to address persistent leaks and an aging water system in Tahoe Donner. The Truckee Donner PUD has made significant investments in replacing Tahoe Donner’s water distribution system and fixing leaks over the last decade, resulting in substantial water savings. Although these projects can cause some short-term traffic disruptions and delays, the reduced water waste and associated energy savings due to reduced pumping costs are there for the long-term!
