Water lines will be replaced on streets in northeast Chino and along Central Avenue between Chino and Schaefer avenues beginning in late January, with completion expected in mid-July, according to Deputy City Manager Vivian Castro.
The Chino City Council at its Nov. 5 meeting approved spending up to $3.2 million for the two water line projects at its Nov. 5 meeting.
Existing water lines will be replaced on Cypress Avenue, Lemon Place, Lime Place, Orange Avenue, Aster Court, Williamsburg Road/Arlington Place, and Marshall Avenue.
Water line improvements will be made in the Central Avenue project.
