Project Location

Throughout the Ackerman Avenue neighborhood. 

Construction materials are being stored at the corner of Ohara Drive and Midway Boulevard.

The vacuum station located at, 18330 Ackerman Avenue is currently under construction in addition to the vacuum collection system. 

Project Impacts

Residents in the Ackerman project area may experience low water pressure for the next few months. Crews are currently transferring over to the water new lines and flushing to keep chlorine residuals up in the area. Work also includes connecting customers to the newly installed lines. 

Crews are encountering large amounts of rock during excavation, which has resulted in an unplanned rock crushing operation at the construction yard.
