City Replaces 92-Year-Old Water Main Along Avenue 64, Affecting Driving Conditions

Published on Friday, July 13, 2018 | 5:25 am

The City of Pasadena has begun installation of a new 8-inch diameter water mainline beneath Avenue 64 between Colorado Boulevard and Church Street, on Pasadena’s western border. It should be completed by the end of August.

The work includes replacing all the fire hydrants and connecting individual water services to the new water main.

The pipeline should increase the overall reliability and quality of water service. The current water main being replaced was originally installed in 1921 and then updated in 1926.

The City said that each property owner along the route will be kept informed if their water must be shut off as the project progresses.
