Today we brought together representatives from So Cal Gas, Goleta Water District, So Cal Edison, Cox Communication, and Verizon to walk the Pardall project site and confirm that everyone was coordinated on utility relocation issues. Building a project of this magnitude in the middle of an existing town and where utility location record keeping has been spotty is a real challenge. Fortunately, we have a group of utility providers who understand the need to keep services intact and keep business open and fully functioning in downtown Isla Vista.
Construction to install a storm drain at Pardall and Camino Pesc continued today as the construction crew worked to complete the 4 ft wide trench across Camino Pesc where the new storm drain pipe will be installed.
At the other end of Pardall, several locations in the roadway were excavated to begin relocating the So Cal Gas lines. Locations in front of Freebirds, IV Surf Co and Dublins were excavated and work will continue tomorrow on relocating natural gas lines.
