Sycamore Canyon Water Main Replacement Update

The Sycamore Canyon project was originally scheduled to be completed in December, 2017. Understandably, the timeline has been delayed. The District is pleased to report that the project is again underway and will be completed as expeditiously as possible. Thank you for your patience, as this may impact traffic in the vicinity of the project on Sycamore Canyon Road between Eucalyptus Hill Road and East Valley Road. Approximately one mile of nearly 100-year-old cast iron pipe (dating back to 1923) will be updated.
