French Valley Recycled Water Pipeline Project – Phase II


Project Description:  The project will install approximately 12,300 feet of recycled water pipeline.

Project Location:  The pipeline route is planned primarily along Pourroy Road from Brookfield Park to Sheffield Park.  The route also connects west on Skyview Road and goes southwest on Algarve Avenue to connect Susan La Vorgna Elementary School and Emerald Park to the system.  The pipeline route also has a small section of alignment along Benton Road, east of Pourroy Road.

Project Timeline:  The project is set to begin construction in Fall 2022 and is set to finish by Fall 2023.  Expect traffic delays, detours, side-street closures, lane closures, temporary no-street parking, and traffic flaggers during this time.

Project Purpose:  The project will allow Emerald Park, Brookfield Park, Susan La Vorgna Elementary School, and other Valley Wide Recreation and Park District facilities to use recycled water instead of potable water for landscaping irrigation purposes.

Project Update:

As of March 8, 2023:

  • Progress To-Date:
    • The Phase II Project is approximately 50% complete.  Crews continue pipeline installation along Pourroy Road.  Traffic control is set-up where work is taking place south of Zion Way on Pourroy Road.  Weather continues to be a determining factor in getting project activities completed on a day-to-day basis.
  • Upcoming Project Activities:
    • Crews will continue pipeline installation on Pourroy Road and the work will require traffic control set-up which includes traffic lanes to be down to one lane of travel as the community travels north on Pourroy Road for the foreseeable future. Please be on the lookout for traffic flaggers and follow all traffic control measures for the safety of the crews and the community
    • Pipeline construction work will continue to move north on Pourroy Road for the next several weeks.  Crews anticipate clearing the Thompson/Pourroy intersection by the end of March (weather-permitting). A small section of traffic control is still needed at the intersection of Pourroy and Thompson to complete project activities.
    • Beginning the week of March 27th (beginning of TVUSD spring break), crews will be working along Algarve and Skyview to complete some project activities.  Project activities will require traffic control set-up. 
      • The community can expect:
        • Working hours remain at 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  During working hours, the community can expect traffic control to be in place as noted above.
          • Traffic control may include delays, detours, side-street closures, lane closures, temporary no-street parking, and access to sidewalks and bike lanes may be temporarily unavailable. 
          • Some traffic control measures may be left in place overnight during the week.
          • Traffic control plans are reviewed and approved by the County of Riverside.​​
        • Large machinery used may be secured safely in the public right-of-way;
        • Temporary increase in noise, dust, and vibrations from construction work;
        • After each workday, crews will be leaving streets in a drivable state with final paving set to occur at the conclusion of the Project.
  • Letters and fact sheets have been mailed out to impacted, surrounding communities.
  • Please note: due to supply chain issues, dates are tentative and subject to change.
