Project Description - On Hold due to budgetary constraints

PID’s pipeline on lower Skyway, from Longview Drive to the Skyway Crossroad is predominantly a four-inch steel main. This project will replace that old, smaller main with 12-inch and 8-inch C900 PVC water main.

This project is a priority for the Paradise Fire Department since it will provide significantly higher fire water flow capability.
