Perris II Reverse Osmosis Treatment Facility (Menifee)

The Perris II Reverse Osmosis Treatment Facility is the third desalter to be constructed at Eastern Municipal Water District’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 a day. EMWD’s desalination program allows for our communities to use of local water supplies and become less reliant on imported water.

Quail Valley Sewer Improvement Project,
Subarea 9 Phase I

In May 2017, EMWD announced that after several years of working with statewide funding agencies on behalf of local residents, we secured funding and would soon begin construction on Subarea 9, Phase I, of a sewer system in the Quail Valley community. EMWD has contracted with Downing Constructors Inc., for this project and will begin work on Subarea 9, Phase I, in October 2017 and continue until Winter 2018-19.
