The Alvarado-Niles Pipeline Seismic Improvement Project is part of the District's $10 million per year Main Renewal and Seismic Upgrade Program (MRSUP). This vital project will improve the seismic reliability of the water distribution systems in the northern portion of the Alameda County Water District's service area. Currently in design, the project will include the installation of over four miles of 16-inch steel pipe along Smith Street and Alvarado Niles Road, between Union City Boulevard and Decoto Road. This pipeline will be designed and installed to sustain a major seismic event along the Hayward Fault, and provide a critical water lifeline to our customers in the District's northern service area. Construction for the first phase of the project is expected to commence in the Fall of 2019.
