Hey, friends, good news! By the time you’re reading this, our office renovations at the Granger-Hunter Improvement District should be complete. No more heading to the west building to pay your water bills and get paperwork for your own projects.
But life is about change and you know there’s always something in the works. And we know that’s true with you as well. Here are a few things to keep in mind as you launch your own renovations and repairs:
• Before you start new construction – or renovate an existing structure – stop by our office to talk about the necessary permits and inspections. Click here for an idea of what we require. (We’ve even included a list of our favorite acronyms!) The bottom line: We want to ensure that any modifications affecting water, sewer, irrigation or fire prevention include plans, material and labor of the quality we expect in our district.
• Another way we might cross paths is if you find repairs are needed, such as burst pipes. Click here to see what you as a homeowner and GHID are responsible for addressing. Basically, the homeowner handles any problems from the building to the water meter for the culinary water line and from the building to the point of connection with the public sanitary sewer main.
• We’re still at work, too, on the upgrade of the Central Valley Water Reclamation Facility. What started as replacing the 30-year-old infrastructure is a work in progress as we design ways to meet stricter discharge limits to be enacted in the next few years. It’s a job we’re in together, hand-in-hand with our district’s customers and with fellow districts who also use of the facility. Click here to check on the status of our ongoing projects. And if you have any questions, contact us here.
