  • Two (2) 12-inch Pipelines
    • Along Perris Boulevard south of Alessandro Boulevard
    • Along Lasselle Street north of Alessandro Boulevard
  • Series of pressure zone pipe interconnections located along Cactus Avenue; and, on the corner of Brodiaea Avenue and Perris Boulevard
  • Series of Valve Closures at or near Cactus Avenue

Project Timeline:  The project began construction in the Summer of 2022 and is set to substantially complete by end of July 2023. Throughout construction, the community can expect traffic delays and temporary water system interruptions happening intermittently.

Project Purpose:  The proposed modifications will improve pressures, water flow, and accommodate new development.

Project Update (as of September 20, 2023):

  • Crews have successfully completed the majority of project activities. 

  • From now until early 2024, the community can expect work to continue at PRS #3 located at Lasselle and Alessandro, by the Crystal Cove Apartment development.

  • Final paving has not been completed along the project alignment as EMWD is working closely with the City of Moreno Valley for coordination and to minimize community impacts.
