District Infrastructure Improvement Projects

FISCAL YEAR 2021 CURED-IN-PLACE PIPE LINING PROJECT

This Project includes the repair of 29 sites throughout our service area that includes over 1.25 miles of pipeline. These repairs keep the District’s infrastructure sound by eliminating defects in our pipes and avoiding sewer spills. Construction will occur between Spring 2021 and Summer 2021. Minor traffic impacts may occur during construction so please check our Facebook page for updates.

ENCINITAS ESTATES PUMP STATION REPLACEMENT
PROJECT

Many items that you put down your drain can potentially negatively impact the environment and your home.

Since our last post announcing our new Easement Machine, our Field Services Technicians have started learning how to operate this new gadget! You may have seen us training on the Rancho La Costa Ridgeline Trail with the City of Encinitas.

The Easement Machine is a self-propelled machine that can extend up to 600 feet of hose to clean pipelines in hard-to-reach areas. The Easement Machine is a cost-effective solution that will allow the District to clean those difficult areas more safely and by using less manpower to complete the task.

Do your part for Plastic Free July ♳

According to Plastic Oceans, we are producing over 380 million tons of plastic every year and more than 10 million tons of plastic is dumped into our oceans every year.

We deeply care about the state of our oceans, as the District pumps back secondary treated water from the Encina Water Pollution Control Facilities that would normally go out their ocean outfall to our Gafner Water Recycling Facility.

In order to keep plastics out of our oceans, we must reduce plastic usage and refuse single-use plastic products.

We're proud of our team for recycling 250 acre feet of water despite challenges endured throughout the last year!

We must all do our part to conserve water in these dry times 💧

Are you aware of how much water you're using everyday? Everyday tasks such as brushing your teeth, showering and washing dishes make use of this vital resource.

Have you thought about how much water your household consumes? Water usage adds up when you account for irrigation and household appliances like dishwashers and laundry machines.
