The Downtown Infrastructure project is to accommodate the anticipated redevelopment of the downtown area and bring the aging water (potable and non-potable), storm drain and sewer facilities up to current standards. For the purpose of this project, the downtown area is bounded by the following streets; Brentwood Boulevard, Pine Street, Third Street and Birch Street including the following alleys; Diablo Way, Midway and Park Way.
The project includes the installation of new water, storm drain and sewer facilities, the rehabilitation of existing facilities and either the removal of, or the replacement of, existing infrastructure to accommodate future redevelopment.

b) Install fiber optic conduit links on Maple Street.
c) A new 6” non-potable water line on Oak Street.
