Thank you for your prompt and detailed reply. I hope the Santa Cruz
Avenue restoration you refer to will be more than just a series of
asphalt patches. The patches on the side streets, such as Hobart, are
of poor quality. Santa Cruz was in excellent condition and well marked
before this project began.

Calwater was nearing the completion of the street restoration work for its Water Main Replacement Project at the end of the calendar year when it discovered a deficiency in the material that was used to reconnect the individual services lines to the mainline. The manufacturer of the parts has accepted responsibility, and Calwater is in the process of expeditiously replacing the part in over 50 locations. Calwater is doing its best to conduct the work while dealing with the rainy season. Depending on the weather, Calwater anticipates that it will be able to complete the work and restore the street in the next few weeks.

Unfortunately, there will be some additional short term inconveniences associated with the sidewalk construction in order to achieve the long term benefits associated with this project. The City and its contractor will do our best to minimize adverse impacts during construction.
