Turlock Surface Water Distribution System Improvements Project
Reliance on groundwater as a single source of water to supply the City of Turlock is no longer sustainable and the Stanislaus Regional Water Authority (SRWA) has identified the Tuolumne River as a surface water supply that can be used in conjunction with the City’s groundwater systems to provide a long-term, reliable drinking water supply. The City of Turlock’s Surface Water Distribution System Improvements Project will install pipelines and construct a water storage tank and pump station, to provide the necessary infrastructure for the City of Turlock to convey purified drinking water from the SRWA’s system to the City of Turlock’s water distribution system and ensure a safe and reliable source of water for the future.
Project construction will include traffic control, lane closures and limited detours in the project area. Anticipated traffic impacts include lane closures and road closures (except to local traffic) and detours will be in effect. Prior to and during active construction, construction notices will be used to inform the community of upcoming activities and impacts. The project is expected to continue through August 2023. Installation of pipelines and construction of a water storage tank will occur in these areas:
- On N. Quincy Road from E. Zeering Road south to Sebastian Drive
- Along E. Zeering Road, from North Quincy Road, west to
- Along E. Monte Vista Avenue between N. Quincy Road and N.
