The San Lorenzo Valley Water District (SLVWD) today announced it has approved plans to reconstruct the Peavine Pipeline, marking a major milestone in the District’s road to recovery following the 2020 CZU Fire disaster.

The plans, approved at the District’s Nov. 2 Board of Directors meeting, enable SLVWD staff to move forward with rebuilding the approximately 1.3 miles of above-ground high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipeline lost when the CZU Fire burned through 1,300 acres of District-owned watershed lands on Ben Lomond Mountain.
