City of Torrance Public Works crews performed planned work to get ahead on a large project in the City today.

They placed a new 10-inch valve for Torrance Unified School District’s upcoming aquatics center that will begin construction sometime in the new year. Since school is out, Public Works planned to replace the valve now, so when construction kicks off later in the year, the schools surrounding the area would not be without water.

The aquatics center will be located near Shery High School and Torrance Elementary School.
