March Coming in Like a Lion for Sunol Valley Work

The Alameda Siphon #4 contractor - Steve P. Rados - has begun preparations for the shutdown of Siphons #2 and #3, and will work around the clock through May to complete the complicated pipeline tie-ins on time.

The San Antonio Pump Station contractor - Mountain Cascade - has begun demolition work on parts of the San Antonio Pump station as part of the upgrade and seismic retrofit. They do this gently, though, since the pump station can't be out of service for any long period of time.

It doesn't look likely that work will go out like a lamb at the end of the month, does it?
