The Arroyo Seco Canyon Project is an endeavor to take a multi-benefit approach to improve water resources and natural habitat while enhancing the recreational experience for visitors in the area between Hahamongna Watershed Park in Pasadena and the Angeles National Forest.
PWP is creating a community solar pilot program for customers. This program will provide everyone with an affordable way to benefit from the sun’s power whether you rent or own your home. The solar power will be produced by a centrally located solar photovoltaic (PV) array that PWP will site and build.
The Program is in place to underground all overhead electric systems, specifically communication and power lines. Newer projects that fall under this program typically cover very short distances and do not result in removal of utility poles.The Electric System Conversion Program is one of two undergrounding programs that PWP manages.
On October 17, Pasadena Water and Power will begin a project to replace an aging water main. The project is expected to be completed by April 2017. The project spans along Forest Avenue from Del Monte Street to Lincoln Avenue. Traffic lanes may be temporarily closed during construction, but streets will remain open for through traffic.
Pasadena's 2011 Water Integrated Resources Plan established a long term strategy to meet current and future water needs. PWP plans to enhance our water supply reliability by providing recycled water to our customers for landscape irrigation and industrial uses in the future.
PWP is replacing the city’s 4kV distribution system with a higher-capacity 17kV system to provide adequate system capacity to meet service demand and maintain service reliability. The project, which began in August 2016, replaced the electrical conduit system in Paloma Street from Canyon Wash Drive to Altadena Drive. The project is now in the civil/underground infrastructures phase, and is estimated to finish by June 2017.
