Another City project has been ongoing this summer, and is now close to completion.

The Public Works Department’s North Torrance Well Field Project is expected to be finished before school starts in two days, which will alleviate any traffic impacts. Crews have been working on developing two additional water wells. The extensive project is located west of Yukon Elementary School and includes other offsite locations.

The project includes a new 3 million-gallon water storage reservoir, a paved access road from Yukon Avenue, which would parallel the existing Caltrans right-of-way adjacent to the 405 freeway and school parking lot upgrades. Additionally, a total of nearly 9,000 feet of associated pipeline will be installed. This project helps alleviate drought impacts.
