General Construction Cleanup

As major construction activity is winding down in the Monrovia Renewal work areas, construction crews will be focusing on clean-up activities and punch list items that include, removal and cleanup of all construction materials, restoration of any damaged areas of streets, sidewalks, and parkways and general housekeeping. It is our goal to ensure that when construction is complete the work area is in better condition when we began work. Please be sure to contact our Public Works Department at (626) 932-5575 or emailif you have any questions or concerns or items that need to be addressed. 

Tree Trimming Maintenance to Continue in the North and Northeast sections of the City 

During the next 4 weeks, West Coast Arborists will be performing routine tree trimming in the area of the City that is north of Foothill Boulevard and  from Myrtle Avenue to the Eastern City Limits. Trimming will include all City owned trees located along the parkways. Trimming operations will take place Monday- Friday from 7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Please be mindful of all posted parking restriction signage. Should you have any questions, please call the Public Works Department at (626) 932-5575.

Dust Control

The project team is aware of the dust concerns that are being created by the road reconstruction activities and are working proactively with the contractor to address them. The primary means of dust control is spreading water over the dusty surface and, currently, the water truck is watering each location 4 to 5 times daily. In addition to working days, the water truck will be deployed on Saturdays and Sundays to control the dust until paving operations are underway. One of the additional means of controlling dust in these work areas is by controlling vehicle speeds. The project team has deployed 15 miles per hour signs within the work area and is encouraging all motorists in the area to watch their speeds in the construction zone. We understand the inconvenience that the construction is causing and we thank you for your patience as we work to complete the street improvements in this area. If you have any questions regarding Monrovia Renewal, please feel free to contact Public Works at (626) 932-5575 or monroviarenewal@ci.monrovia.ca.us.


Sewer Cleaning and Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV)

As a part of our routine maintenance program and to facilitate the design of Monrovia Renewal repairs, all of the sewer lines in the City are being cleaned and inspected using Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) technology.

When National Plant Services is out in the field, they use a jetter (or cleaning truck) and a box truck containing the television equipment. The equipment is situated next to sewer manholes located in the road, and the crew takes about 30 minutes at each manhole location. The lines are first cleaned and then inspected utilizing the television equipment.
