  • Water availability for the design of our water system.
  • Water main extension evaluation.
  • System improvement and replacement planning.
  • Evaluate the general condition of the water distribution system by detecting closed valves.

  • Shadow Mountain Road, to Mission Bell Avenue west of Gamble Court.
