Geotechnical work at the Palo Alto site
Starting mid-May, Valley Water will conduct a geotechnical study at the former Los Altos Treatment Plant at 1237 San Antonio Road in Palo Alto for the Purified Water Project. This site is one of two locations under study for a future advanced water purification facility. As part of the project planning process, Valley Water contractors will conduct geotechnical investigations using a drill rig to evaluate the condition of the site’s soil.
Work will occur between the hours of 7 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and is expected to last approximately a week. Trail and traffic impacts are not anticipated. A biological survey will be done prior to the drilling to ensure the protection of sensitive species and habitat.
