Manteca is preparing to install a 12-inch water line from Austin Road to Pestana Avenue along East Louise Avenue.
The $205,000 project involves 2,050 linear feet of pipe. The City Council is expected to call for bids on Tuesday when they meet at 7 p.m. at the Civic Center, 1001 W. Center St.
The line will tap into one the city has already put in place to bring additional treated surface water to customers. It will reduce reliance on underground water plus help increase pressure.
The stretch of Louise Avenue will also have a number of fire hydrants put in place.
