Construction Update: Town of Sunol Fire Suppression System Project

Construction has begun to improve the water distribution system and fire hydrants in the Town of Sunol. The project includes constructing two miles of new pipelines on County roads, installation of approximately 26 new fire hydrants, and replacing the existing water tanks that serve the Town of Sunol.

Two Important Construction Updates:  

1) There has been a shift in the project schedule. The pipeline installation on West Foothill Boulevard (west of Kilkare Road) has been moved up to the week of August 4th, and should be completed by August 13th. Please expect delays in the area (see map).

Upcoming work: Construction on Lower Kilkare Road from this intersection will begin shortly thereafter in mid-August. Finally, the jack and bore crossing underneath the Alameda County Railroad at the intersection of Main Street and Kilkare Road is expected to begin in mid-August as well.


2) Water Tank Shutdown. In order to begin work on tank hill, crews will be taking the water tanks that service the town out of service from 11 p.m. Monday, August 4, 2014 until 5:00 am. Tuesday August 5, 2014. SFPUC customers should not experience a loss in water service, however some residences might experience lower water pressure during this nighttime period. Water service should return to normal the morning of August 5, 2014. The shutdown has been scheduled at night to minimize inconvenience.

If you should have any questions at any time, please do not hesitate to contact us at our 24-hour hotline (866) 973-1476 or epowell@sfwater.org; blauppe@sfwater.org.

Thank you for your patience during construction!
