CURRENT AND UPCOMING PROJECTS:
The Utilities Department is in the process of updating most of the existing sewer lift stations in Alhambra. A current project underway is Lift Station #2 and an upcoming project is Lift Station #7. The new sewer lift stations being built will have all new state-of-the-art equipment, which will be much more energy efficient and easier to mantain. The Utilities Department also plans to upgrade an existing sewer main line on Glendon Way. Construction is planned to commence in the Spring of 2018. Future growth in the City of Alhambra has put greater demands on the current infrastructure. The Utilities Department is looking towards the future to meet those demands by investing in necessary infrastructure improvements.
The Valley Boulevard Sewer Replacement Project was completed in December of 2017. The project was constructed in two phases. The first phase began at the corner of Almansor Street and Adams Avenue, through Valley Boulevard and ending at Garfield Avenue. This phase consisted of upgrading the existing sewerlines to much larger diameter sewerlines. Phase two continued the sewer replacement project onto Atlantic Boulevard. Both projects were completed in a timely manner and with minimal disruptions to our customers.
