Throughout its history, PCWA has actively managed and planned for the future by renewing and replacing portions of the Agency’s expansive water system. In 2017, PCWA completed two high priority projects. The Whitney Boulevard Pipeline project replaced and relocated approximately 4,100 feet of pipeline in Rocklin. The pipeline delivers treated water to the community around Whitney Boulevard and upgrades the 1960’s-era water main in use at the time of construction.
The Hayford Flume Replacement project installed a new conveyance pipe along a hillside to allow for the demolition of the Hayford Flume #2. The wooden flume was susceptible to fire and catastrophic failure. Completion of the project minimizes routine periodic maintenance costs and provides a more reliable service to downstream communities.

PCWA Commended for Transparency Excellence

On October 19, the Special District Leadership Foundation awarded PCWA with a District Transparency Certificate of Excellence award. “We’re always mindful of the fact that we’re a public agency tasked with the goal of serving and representing the water resource interests of the county and our customers,” said PCWA General Manager Einar Maisch. “Being transparent is essential to that goal. I want to commend our staff and the Board on receiving this certificate.”

3 PCWA Employees Create a New Invention

Three PCWA field services employees were recognized by the American Water Works Association for their construction of an innovative jackhammer storage box. James Martinez, Mike Laymance and Dustin Rhodes designed the jackhammer storage box to increase safety around work sites. The jackhammer box received the second-place prize for AWWA’s 2017 Gimmicks & Gadgets Contest.

55 Years of Hard Work Pays Off

On January 1, PCWA assumed complete control of power generation of the Middle Fork American River Project. It’s a momentous occasion, 55 years in the making.
Placer County residents voted to finance construction of the Middle Fork Project in 1961. Following construction, PCWA signed a 50-year power sale agreement with PG&E, in which it controlled and received power generation, but paid for all operating costs and construction debt. When that agreement ended in 2013, PCWA and PG&E entered a new five-year agreement where PCWA made the economic decisions about when to generate power and PG&E put the decisions into effect. On January 1, that agreement ended, and with it, PG&E’s involvement with the Middle Fork Project.

responsibilities have been transferred to the Northern California Power Agency in Roseville and PCWA has assumed the role of scheduling coordinator for the Middle Fork Project. The transition fulfills all of the Agency’s long-term obligations and brings the vision of PCWA’s forefathers for the Middle Fork Project full circle.
