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.
May 2023 Update: Work will begin in the Sanderson Avenue and Esplanade Avenue intersection on May 7, 2023, and take place between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. EMWD asks that motorists avoid this area and anticipate detours and delays during working hours. The intersection will be open during non-working hours. This work is anticipate to last approximately one month.
