Construction Update for the Town of Sunol Fire Suppression Project

We are pleased to announce that the fire hydrants installed within the Town of Sunol are live! The new water main that serves these hydrants is full of water, and should a fire occur within the Town, fire fighters can now access water through these hydrants. The contractor will unwrap the hydrants momentarily. We are not finished with the entire project, yet. There are a few more items left to be done.

Here's what to expect over the next couple of weeks:

Bollard Installation around Fire Hydrants
In order to protect some of the newly installed hydrants from accidental damage from vehicles, we will install bollards around the more exposed hydrants. These bollards will conform with Alameda County Fire Specifications. Installation is scheduled to begin this week and should take a week or so to complete.

Sidewalk Restoration at SFPUC Corporation Yard
We will be restoring the sidewalk directly adjacent to the SFPUC-owned corporation yard at the corner of Main and Bond Streets next two weeks as well.

Pavement Restoration
Once all the construction work within town is complete, we will work with Alameda County inspectors to repair street structural damage caused by construction and slurry seal Main Street. Spot repair of pavement damage will happen at the end of February. If you notice a damaged section of payment that occurred because of construction of the project, please notify us at We would appreciate hearing back by Monday, February 23rd.

Slurry Seal of Main Street will happen in warmer weather - currently planned for this spring.

Pipeline Connection Work at the intersection of Kilkare / Main and Foothill Roads It is possible that crews will modify the pipeline connections at the intersection of Kilkare / Main, and Foothill Roads to further optimize the fire hydrant system. Additional details will be forthcoming if this comes to fruition.

Storage Tanks
Installation of the first of the two new replacement tanks on Tank Hill continues. Once the first new water storage tank on Tank Hill is placed in service (Spring 2015), the remaining pair of old, smaller water tanks will be demolished, and construction will start on the second replacement tank. Construction on Tank Hill will continue through summer of 2015.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, comments, or concerns.
