What We Do

Mountain Avenue West Groundwater Replenishment Facility

Located on the northeast corner of Mountain and Esplanade avenues in the City of San Jacinto.

In the Fall of 2019, Eastern Municipal Water District (EMWD) will break ground on its new Mountain Avenue West Groundwater Replenishment Facility, which will serve as the future home for EMWD’s Water Banking project as part of its Groundwater Reliability Plus initiative.

The Mountain Avenue West Groundwater Replenishment Facility will be located on the northeast corner of Mountain and Esplanade avenues in the City of San Jacinto. Once completed, the facility will have two large basins that will allow water imported from Northern California to seep into our local groundwater aquifer, where it will be available for use during dry years.

That water will be imported during years of normal and heavy rain and snow fall. It will be extracted during dry years to help EMWD meet the demands of its communities. It will also help mitigate the impacts of future droughts. By increasing local groundwater basin levels, EMWD is able to increase water supply reliability for the future. The facility will also help EMWD improve the groundwater quality in the aquifer.
