FMWD Says Thanks for Conservation During Pipeline Work

Foothill Municipal Water District received an outstanding public response from customers refraining from outdoor water use to accommodate the inspection of an imported water pipeline.
The inspection covered about 10,000 feet of pipeline starting near the Rose Bowl and ending in La Cañada Flintridge. From March 19-23, a robot used high-definition cameras and electromagnetic sensors to measure the steel wall thickness of the pipe and log other data points as it traveled.
