Update for 63-inch Pipeline in Redwood Shores

The following message from Silicon Valley Clean Water was shared with RSCA in order to inform residents about an issue that affects Redwood Shores residents.

 


 

Geotechnical Investigations Set for July 16-17

Consultants for Silicon Valley Clean Water on Wednesday and Thursday, July 16 and July 17, will be conducting preliminary geotechnical investigations in the locations described and shown below.

The work, called cone penetrometer tests, involves a truck parked on the pavement for about an hour, sometime between 7 am and 5 pm. In some locations if a lane is blocked, traffic control will be provided to direct traffic around the truck.

The truck has equipment that will push a rod down into the ground to depths of up to 120 feet in order to gather information about the ground so that engineers can confirm if a deep tunnel is feasible.

The geotechnical investigation is part of investigating the feasibility of replacing SVCW pipelines without surface disruption through Redwood Shores.

The six locations are:

  • C-1 Shearwater Parkway between Breakwater Drive and Mindano Drive.
  • C-2 Redwood City Reservoir near Avocet Drive.
  • C-3 Shell Parkway between Marine Parkway and Davit Lane.
  • C-5 End of Spar Drive.
  • C-7 Twin Dolphin Drive between Shoreline Drive and Lagoon Drive.
  • C-10 off of Whipple Avenue near E. Bayshore Road.

Eggstravaganza 2014!

It’s time for the RSCA’s annual Eggstravaganza, held every year at Marlin Park in the center of Redwood Shores. Bring all your children and a basket for goodies to the park for the big Egg Hunt, where toddlers and young kids can seek out goodies hidden in the grass and playground. Also, the Easter Bunny will be there to lead off the Egg Hunt and later to pose for pictures with the boys and girls, so be sure to take along a camera as well!

The festivities begin at 1:00 PM on Saturday, April 19th at Marlin Park here in Redwood Shores.

Be sure to arrive early so that your child can line up in the right age category — the eggs disappear quickly, and the whistle begins exactly at 1:00, so be on time!

 

We’ll have treats for the kids, so please bring a small basket. (Please limit your children to 6 eggs each so that everyone can share.) Look for the GOLDEN EGGS for a special prize!

Our local RWC Police will also be available to provide voluntary FINGERPRINTING for children of parents who might wish to have this record for identification. Because a child’s appearance can change in a short time, fingerprinting can be the best way to identify a lost child. And parents, don’t forget your camera for photo opportunities with the Easter Bunny.

The Eggstravaganza is run by RSCA, and is a great place to sign up with our organization if you have not yet had a chance to do so. Please join in in making great events like this possible in Redwood Shores!
