TDPUD Pipeline Construction for Summer 2013

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!

Any questions regarding this project should be directed to the District’s Water System Engineer, Neil Kaufman, at 530-582-3950.

Forestry Facility Opens

New Forestry Facility Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

On Thursday, April 18 at 5:30 p.m. there will be a homeowner tour and ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of a new forestry facility in Tahoe Donner. All Tahoe Donner members are invited and encouraged to come and learn more about our robust Forestry program. The ceremony will take place at 10500 Teton Way. To minimize the impact on neighborhoods, take one of three routes (all starting at the Northwoods light):

  • Left on Northwoods Blvd., left on Skislope Way and left on Teton Way.
  • Left on Northwoods Blvd., left on Christie Lane, left on Skislope Way, and right on Teton Way.
  • Left on Northwoods Blvd., left on Davos Drive, left on Skislope Way, and right on Teton Way.

Tahoe Donner boasts one of the most successful forest conservation programs in the country. The aim of the new facility is to continue Tahoe Donner’s active involvement in conserving the natural beauty of the area, while managing habitation health and sustainability. The Tahoe Donner Association regularly consults local archaeologists, wildlife biologists, and botanists in early stages of development planning to ensure that they are considering what is best for the environment.

The new forestry facility has been built on an existing plot that has been remodeled to accommodate 8,841 square feet of new office and storage space for efficient operations. Come along and celebrate with us! For more information call the forestry department on (530) 587-9432 or member services at (530) 587-9400.
