Coyote Pump Plant

The Plant receives water from the San Luis Reservoir and has six pumps located in the Pump Building that deliver raw water to treatment plants and groundwater recharge ponds throughout Santa Clara County.

Coyote Warehouse Project schedule update #2: Preconstruction activities extended to Aug. 4, 2017

This message is an update on a previous Nextdoor post from Monday, July 24, 2017 that provided notification of extended preconstruction activities from vacant land located next to the Coyote Pumping Plant on Peet Road.

The preconstruction activity to remove soil stockpiles from the Coyote Warehouse Project site is taking longer than anticipated due in part to precautionary dust control measures the water district implemented. Safety is a top priority for the water district. The water district is using best management practices to control dust when removing the soil stockpiles, including periodically watering the stockpile, hosing the excavator bucket when digging into the stockpile, and spraying it with water before placing it in the trucks. Completion of all work will extend to Aug. 4.

During this time, expect continued truck traffic along Peet Road and Cochrane Road on weekdays through Aug. 4, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Coyote Warehouse Project is a warehouse facility to be built on an 8.2-acre parcel owned by the Santa Clara Valley Water District, which is located adjacent to the Coyote Pumping Plant. The project will be used to store pump and pipeline parts and other materials for the maintenance of water district and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s facilities. These items are currently stored in the open and visible to neighbors. The completed project will not result in an increase in staff or activities at the site.

Construction is anticipated to begin in early 2018 and take approximately 14 months to complete.
