Anvil Builders is using the larger portion of city-owned property located at Northgate Boulevard and Patio Avenue to stage and store equipment for several months. Anvil will be working on an underground pipe replacement project for PG&E in the area.

According to city Councilmember Jeff Harris’s office, items stored on the site will include backhoe, plastic pipe and aggregate material such as sand, gravel, cutback and more. The site will be fenced off and monitored.
