Document Description
LADWP is committed in providing a safe and reliable source of water to its customers, and is in the midst of a program to replace aging and leaking infrastructure, including the Kester and Friar Mainline Replacement Project (proposed project). The proposed project consists of replacing approximately 3931 feet of 6-inch and 2295 feet of 8-inch mainline water distribution on Kester and Columbus avenues and Friar, Delano, and Sylvan streets. Construction would also include installation of new laterals for fire hydrants. Mainline installation involves excavation of trenches that average 2 feet wide and 5 feet deep and will be covered with steel plates until completion of each replaced pipe segment is backfilled with slurry and paved. Construction each day will be confined to a small area and moves along the project alignment for a total duration of approximately 8 months until completion. Construction is anticipated to begin mid-2022
