Portal III 2018 Fire Hydrant Installation 

INSTALLATION START DATE: MAY 21, 2018 

ESTIMATED DURATION: 6 - 8 WEEKS

As you know your Board has been working to get additional fire hydrants installed within our Portal.

After much interaction with the Water Department and Fire Department, various engineering studies, bid proposals, and County permits the installation of five additional Fire Hydrants is about to begin.  It needs to be noted that rather than the traditional type of fire hydrant, like the one currently installed at the Juniper Loop/Canyon Vista intersection, due to water flow limitations what is being installed is Fire Department Connection Stand Pipes.  A representative pictorial of one is attached to this email.  Along with a Portal III map showing their approximate installation locations, which is near lots 14, 61, 85, 140, and 189, .  The reason none are being installed on the southern end of our Portal, along Arroyo Way is limited water pressure required by the Fire Department.

Potential lot number water interferences (reduced pressure/no water) for each of the FDC Water Pipe installations:

With respect to each of the five FDC Water Pipes, here are the affected lot numbers:

# 1 FDC Water Pipe – Affected  Lots:

·       9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33

 

# 2 FDC Water Pipe – Affected Lots:

·       47, 48, 49, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61

       

# 3 FDC Water Pipe – Affected Lots:  Affects FDC #5 zone as well.

·       71, 72, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87, 88, 121, 122, 123, 124, 126, 127, 128, 129, 130, 131, 132, 133, 134, 135, 136, 137, 138, 145, 146, 147, 148, 149

·       125, 139, 140, 141, 142, 143, 144

 

# 4 FDC Water Pipe – Affected Lots:

·       151, 152, 153

 

#5 FDC Water Pipe – Affected Lots:

·       125, 139, 140, 141, 142, 143, 144

 

These lot numbers may vary, as they are based on the Pressure Reducing Valves (PRCs) and water service locations from the existing PSWID plans.

Again, all efforts will be made to minimize the respective water interferences and the respective durations.  No overnight affects are anticipated.
