OUR CREWS ARE BUSY
Our $41 million Capital Improvement Program has begun. Rialto Water Services and Veolia are actively working on a range of projects to ensure water supply reliability, maintain water quality, and environmentally friendly wastewater treatment.
Under the Concession Agreement, there were 24 key projects identified and prioritized. The team at Rialto Water Services has reviewed the list of project and is working diligently to move these projects forward.
Among the active or planned capital improvement projects are:
- Replacement of water meters. Old meters must be replaced because they no longer provide accurate measurements of water use.
- Improving the online electronic monitoring and computer system that runs our water and wastewater systems. These “SCADA” systems include a comprehensive remote monitoring and control network.
- Replacing water service lines to homes. Replacement will help prevent water leaks.
- Repairing or replacing main water distribution lines.
- Replacing worn and outdated manhole covers
- Replacing worn equipment at water booster stations
- Replacement of worn or damage fire hydrants
- Improvements and repairs at the city’s wastewater treatment plant
- Sewer line replacements
RWS and Veolia are moving forward on a range of capital improvement projects for the water and wastewater systems.
You may see us or contractors in the streets replacing water mains, fixing manhole covers, or installing new water service lines to your home or business. Some major water distribution pipelines have reached the end of their lifespan – replacement ensures our water delivery systems remain reliable.
We also are improving water wells, booster stations and other equipment to save electricity and become more efficient.
You also may receive a new water meter. When water meters age, they don’t provide an accurate measure of water use. We are replacing about 900 meters a year.
