First Project in Poway’s $70-Million Water Improvement Program is Complete

With Poway’s Clearwell Bypass Project now complete, the temporary bypass system is expected to be fully operational this month, officials said. Sometime in November, the city’s clearwell, or treated water reservoir, will be permanently removed from service and the bypass pipeline, the temporary tanks and other bypass infrastructure will be in service, said Shadi Sami, Poway’s principal civil engineer, at a recent City Council meeting
