      Wildcat Pipeline Project
      EBMUD is planning to install a new 48-inch transmission pipeline in Berkeley to improve and expand the water system in an area that serves customers from Berkeley to Crockett. Prior to the initiation of pipe installation, a large valve was installed on Bancroft Way in January 2018 at Ellsworth Street in Berkeley to connect the new transmission lines to the existing distribution system. Exploratory work to gather information about existing infrastructure in Ellsworth St. and Stuart St. will take place intermittently leading up to major project work.

      Starting in summer 2019 for approximately 6 months, EBMUD crews will begin preliminary work to relocate existing pipes and install new valves at 5 locations along the project alignment on Ellsworth Street from Bancroft Way to Stuart Street and on Stuart Street from Ellsworth Street to Benvenue Avenue. Construction of the Wildcat Pipeline in Berkeley is anticipated to begin in early 2021 and last for about two years.
