The San Jacinto Valley Raw Water Pipeline Phase I will begin in early 2022 and be completed in late 2022. This project will involve the construction of 2.25 miles of large-diameter pipeline in San Jacinto and Hemet to help convey untreated water to both the Hemet Water Filtration Plant and to increase capacity for EMWD’s groundwater replenishment efforts.
The pipeline will begin at Warren Road and Esplanade Avenue in San Jacinto and travel east to Sanderson Avenue, where it will turn south. It will then turn left on Commonwealth Avenue to Kirby Street.
Work along Esplanade Avenue will begin in late Spring 2022. The vast majority of the work along Esplanade Avenue between Warren Road and Sanderson Avenue will take place north of the paved roadway. EMWD asks that you use caution when traveling in the area and observe all traffic control to ensure the safety of our crews and the community.
Work near the intersection of Esplanade and Sanderson Avenues will begin the week of May 23, 2022. This intersection will have nighttime closures from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. beginning in mid-June. These closures will last several weeks until work in the intersection is complete.
