Timberland Water System Improvement Project (Timberland Interconnection and Distribution Improvements)
In January 2018, TCPUD acquired the former Timberland Water Company and began providing water service to Timberland’s former customers on January 2, 2018. TCPUD staff identified the subject Project as a high priority capital improvement project to begin construction activities in 2019. The first phase of the Project includes installation of approximately 4,440 linear feet of 8-inch water main, 487 linear feet of 4-inch water main, 80 service reconnections and meters, 10 new fire hydrants, and 6 refurbished fire hydrants to replace the varying 2-inch to 6-inch existing system infrastructure.
Since acquiring the Timberland Water System in 2018, TCPUD Board of Directors has dedicated significant time understanding how to invest in and improve the water supply and fire suppression capabilities of the system. The Board has approved over $2 million in 2019 towards this estimated $3.7 million capital infrastructure project.
The project will benefit public health through enhancement of water supply and reliability as well as improving fire protection within the water system service area.
Project construction is planned for two phases, starting mid-June 2019.
