Maintenance and Capital Projects
Newhall County Water District is involved in a number of ongoing projects throughout the year to ensure our facilities operate safety and customers receive reliable water service.
NCWD routinely flushes distribution system dead-ends (i.e., cul-del-sacs) to proactively maintain good water quality. Operators locate designated blow-off connections in the street and link them to an unit mounted on a truck to defuse and dechlorinate the water. Once attached, a valve is opened which allows water to flow through the diffusing unit. While flushing, the operator collect data (flow, chlorine residual, visual water quality characteristics) and later inputs the information into a database.
