Ramped up truck hauling begins Tuesday, Sept. 8

On Tuesday, Sept. 8, the water district begins a two-month hauling operation at the Rinconada Water Treatment Plant that will support construction of the new sedimentation and flocculation basins and the ozone contactor facilities.

The district’s contractor will excavate for the foundation of these structures, with about 20 trucks carrying away from the plant more than 10,000-cubic yards of material.

Recognizing the impact this could have on the plant’s neighbors, the district has implemented a number of measures to reduce any negative effects. They include:

  • Restricted hours for truck operations: Hauling is limited to Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Operations on Wednesday can only take place between 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m. These hours ensure no hauling takes place when students go to or leave Rolling Hills Middle School, located at the corner of More
    Avenue and Pollard Road.
  • Specific haul routes: All project trucks are required to stay on the approved haul route, which from the Rinconada plant goes from More Avenue to Pollard Road to Knowles Drive to Winchester Boulevard to Highway 17. Empty trucks will come into the Rinconada plant from More Avenue to Capistrano Place to the gate entrance on Granada Way and then will exit directly onto More Avenue.
  • Cleaning of streets: The contractor will ensure the streets on the haul route remain clean and will proactively clean truck tires prior to letting them leave the Rinconada Plant. This work will greatly assist in keeping the public roads on the truck haul route free from dirt.

For any concerns with this notice or the project, please contact the neighborhood liaison Tony Mercado at tmercado@valleywater.org or at 408-426-1039.
