Saturday work at the Rinconada plant will continue for the foreseeable future as the water district steps up efforts to complete the project in a timely and safe fashion. Since July 2018, the district has allowed contractors to work Saturdays between 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Some restrictions are in place out of consideration for the neighborhood, including:
- No construction except within buildings
- No construction truck or tractor work outside of buildings, including dump trucks, backhoes, jackhammers or other motorized equipment
- No outside construction lighting or outside generator operations
At the last neighborhood meeting on Feb. 21, 2018, the water district outlined the work schedule change that is now part of the Environmental Impact Report. The town of Los Gatos Public Works Department approved the new hours.
