EMWD Construction Updates

Overview

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.

Capital Improvement Quarterly Report: FY 2018/2019 - Quarter 3

Current EMWD Projects 

Fox Street Tank and Pipeline (Mead Valley)

This project consists of the construction of a welded steel tank with the capacity of one million gallons of water in the Mead Valley community. The tank replaces the 0.15 million gallon Orange Tank. In addition to the new tank, EMWD is also constructing a pipeline to connect the tank to existing infrastructure. The pipeline will go down Fox Street and Ellis Road.

Mountain Avenue West Groundwater Replenishment Facility

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.

Perris II Reverse Osmosis Treatment Facility (Menifee)

This is the third desalter to be constructed at EMWD’s Desalination Complex in the City of Menifee. Once constructed, the facility will treat brackish (salty) groundwater to drinking water standards.

Perris II will produce 5.4 million gallons of water each day. EMWD’s desalination program allows for our communities to use local groundwater supplies, making EMWD’s service area less reliant on imported water.

Quail Valley Sewer Improvement Project, Subarea 9 – Phase I (Menifee)

In May 2017, EMWD announced that after several years of working with statewide funding agencies on behalf of local residents, it secured funding and would soon begin construction on Subarea 9, Phase I, of a sewer system in the Quail Valley community.

The project includes a main sewer line that runs from Goetz Road to portions of Vista Way, Casa Bonita Avenue, Platino Drive, Datil Drive and La Cresta Drive. 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.

For questions regarding the Quail Valley On-Site Septic Tank – Subsurface Disposal System (Septic System) prohibition please contact the Regional Water Quality Control Board, Santa Ana at 951-782-4130 or visit their website.
