First Street Emergency Water Main Replacement

First Street Emergency Water Main Replacement

 The City of Sebastopol Public Works Department has located and confirmed an active leak in the First Street water main. In order to prevent damage to private property from the existing leak, prevent future ruptures, and lessen inconvenience to residences should water main work be required in the future, part of the water main on First Street will be replaced and reconfigured to the public right-of-way.
 
Work has begun and is expected to continue for approximately 2 weeks.
 

  • City Staff has already begun locating the existing utilities within First-Street-Watermain-Map-Notification.pngthe replacement area. 
  • Team Ghilotti has been contracted to perform the construction work and is scheduled to perform onsite investigative pothole work from Friday, May 10 through Monday, May 13.
  • The proposed schedule lists major excavation and road closures beginning on Tuesday, May 14, continuing through Monday, May 27. Vehicular traffic on First Street between Leland Street and Woodland Avenue will be restricted to residents only during this phase. 
  • If no unforeseen delays are encountered, the water shutdown to install the new connections is set for Friday, May 24  from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 
  • Final trench compaction and paving is scheduled for Wednesday, May 29.
