Somis, CA, August 29, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Ventura County Supervisor Linda Parks, Ventura County Public Works Agency Director of Water and Sanitation Reddy Pakala, and the Ventura County Waterworks District 19 (VCWWD #19) Advisory Board, will join other dignitaries for a ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the completion of the West Alley paving as part of the VCWWD #19 Water Pipelines Replacement Project on Wednesday, Sept. 3.
The paving of the pot-holed dirt alley has been long-desired by local Somis residents and Post Office customers. The project is a part of the multi-year Infrastructure Improvement Program, which is funded through a $5 million low-interest loan from the US Department of Agriculture in 2014.
The ongoing project consists of replacing existing water pipelines that are more than 50 years old with 9,800-feet of new water lines. A new blending station at Well 4 was constructed to facilitate the blending of the local well water with the imported State water, which will improve the water quality and reduce the salt level for customers.
Who/What: Ventura County Supervisor Linda Parks, Ventura County Public Works Agency and the Ventura County Waterworks District 19 Advisory Board will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the West Alley Paving project.
When: Wednesday, Sept. 3, at 9:30 a.m.
Where: Near the Somis Post Office Parking Lot, 3349 Somis Road, Somis, Calif. 93066
