EMWD Construction Updates
EMWD’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) is a 5-year snapshot of our long-term Capital Improvement Plan document which contains all of the water treatment and delivery, wastewater collection and treatment, and recycled water distribution system capital improvements that are needed to support the buildout of existing jurisdictional General Plans throughout our service area. CIP projects are financed by developer fees, grants and municipal bonds.
This report provides highlights of completed projects from the past quarter, as well as an overview of current active projects.

Current EMWD Projects
Mountain Avenue West Groundwater Replenishment Facility (San Jacinto)
In the Fall of 2019, Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) will break ground on its new Mountain Avenue West Groundwater Replenishment Facility, which will serve as the future home for EMWD’s Water Banking project as part of its Groundwater Reliability Plus initiative.
The Mountain Avenue West Groundwater Replenishment Facility will be located on the northeast corner of Mountain and Esplanade avenues in the City of San Jacinto. Once completed, the facility will have two large basins that will allow water imported from Northern California to seep into our local groundwater aquifer, where it will be available for use during dry years.
That water will be imported during years of normal and heavy rain and snow fall. It will be extracted during dry years to help EMWD meet the demands of its communities. It will also help mitigate the impacts of future droughts. By increasing local groundwater basin levels, EMWD is able to increase water supply reliability for the future. The facility will also help EMWD improve the groundwater quality in the aquifer.

Quail Valley Sewer Improvement Project (Menifee)
EMWD is currently in the process of designing a sewer system that will serve Subarea 4 of the Quail Valley community. The initial design of sewer for the area is set to be complete in the spring of 2021.
In July 2019, EMWD completed Subarea 9, Phase I of the Quail Valley Sewer Project.
The project included a main sewer line that runs from Goetz Road to portions of Vista Way, Casa Bonita Avenue, Platino Drive, Datil Drive and La Cresta Way. In total, 159 existing homes and 75 vacant properties will be connected to the new sewer line. The project is set to reach substantial completion by the summer of 2019.
