Water district lauded for project

RANCHO SANTA FE — The American Public Works Association (APWA) presented the Santa Fe Irrigation District with an award for its Group 1 Pressure Reducing Stations and Valves Replacement Project May 9.The district’s winning project was a $5.7 million comprehensive project that replaced aging infrastructure throughout the district’s service area. The project was completed in April 2012 and comprised of:

— Replacement of 10 existing Pressure Reducing Stations with 9 new stations (one new station will now serve the function of 2); and

— Replacement of 126 distribution isolation valves ranging in size from 6 to 30 inches; and

— Installation of approximately 55 air release and vacuum valves and 5 blow-off appurtenances throughout the backbone distribution system.

Construction of the Project began in November of 2010, and included more than 80 water system shutdowns during a 40-week period. The 16-month construction project occurred at nearly 200 different locations throughout Solana Beach and Rancho Santa Fe and affected most of the district’s water customers. This required a collaborative effort between district staff, the designer, and the contractor to keep the project on schedule while keeping the public impacts minimal.
