Energy Savings and Production Project

City Project No. 2013-11

In its continued commitment to sustainability, the City of Livermore has worked with Chevron Energy Solutions to develop a fully comprehensive project that will reduce its energy usages and improve its buildings and working environment.  The project will help reduce operational costs, reach climate action plan goals, increase health and safety, help residents and businesses save money, and provide workforce development options.  It will surely put the City in an environmental leadership.  Through the energy conservation program, the City is expecting to reduce electricity usage by more than 40% and greenhouse emissions by approximately 5.3 million pounds per year, which is similar to taking 472 cars off the road each year.  The complete scope of the energy conservation program includes installing photovoltaic (PV) power generation to the civic center, airport and maintenance center; upgrading interior and exterior lighting at various City facilities; adding variable frequency drives to the chilled and hot water pumps in the Police Station to reduce energy use, installing plug-in electric vehicle charging stations at the Civic Center and Maintenance Center; and converting existing high pressure sodium street lights to LED lighting.  Construction began on this project in October 2012 and construction has been completed.

Galaxy Court Flood Protection and Culvert Replacement Project

City Project No. 2010-29

The Galaxy Court Flood Projection and Trail Culvert Replacement Project will replace a trail crossing over the Arroyo Las Positas at the Springtown Golf Course. It will also replace the metal culverts that convey water beneath the trail.  A concrete box culvert, sufficient to convey 100 year creek flows, will replace the metal culverts. The existing metal culverts are undersized and during the winter months the Arroyo periodically inundates the culverts and overtops the trail.  Overtopping of the trail has resulted in erosion that has undermined the trail and compromised the structural integrity of the culverts and trail crossing.  The restricted flow in the Arroyo causes water to back up through the storm drain system into nearby residential areas and floods the streets, sidewalks and front yards of homes. The proposed project will alleviate area flooding, improve natural habitat and provide a safe trail crossing over the Arroyo Las Positas. The project was awarded to PARC Services, Inc., a Livermore based business, on July 22, 2013.  Construction will commence in June 2014 and should be completed by August 2014.
