The valve chambers will house underground pipe and valves to control the flow of water through the mains in the area. The new main and valve chambers will then be connected to the existing water distribution system. </p><p>The project is in the early planning and design stage and construction is expected to begin in 2021 through 2025. When complete, the new tunnel will meet current seismic standards, help ensure the continued reliable delivery of clean, safe drinking water to the region, and increase the capacity of the existing system for the region's growing population. </p></div>
