After a series of water main breaks in Redwood Heights, especially the Jordan Road area late last year, East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) made some changes to the timeline and scope of pipeline work planned in Oakland. On December 10, 2020, it presented the preliminary plan to replace pipelines in the Redwood Heights neighborhood. This work will improve water service, reduce water loss, and pipeline breaks in the service area.
On Wednesday, April 28, 2021, the EBMUD staff reviewed the Pipeline Rebuild program, provided an updated timeline, gave us additional details on the scope of the work planned in Redwood Heights, and answered questions from attendees. Learn more about the plan by watching the video of the event.
Water main breaks are disruptive to everyone impacted by them. EBMUD is proactively replacing its pipelines to improve water service, reduce water loss and the number of pipeline breaks in the service area. In the East Bay, 4,200 miles of pipelines, under bustling neighborhoods and busy streets, deliver high-quality water to 1.4 million customers.
After the series of main breaks in the Jordan Road area earlier this year, East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) made some changes to the timeline and scope of pipeline work. In this meeting, EBMUD staff provided information about its Pipeline Rebuild Program, and the timeline and scope of work for the upcoming pipeline work in the Redwood Heights area.
