The Quail Valley Septic to Sewer project is a multi-phased effort to construct sewer and abandon septic tanks in two areas (Subareas 9 and 4) of the Quail Valley community of the City of Menifee.

Subareas 9 and 4 are currently under a On-Site Septic Tank – Subsurface Disposal System (Septic System) prohibition and therefore the focus of the project.

For questions regarding the prohibition please contact the Regional Water Quality Control Board, Santa Ana at 951-782-4130 or visit their website.

Goetz Road and Subarea 4

EMWD is currently in the process of designing a sewer system that will serve Subarea 4 of the Quail Valley community (see maps above and below). The project will be funded via grant funding from state and federal partners.
