District Infrastructure Improvement Projects Under Way or Recently Completed

Rancho Verde Pump Station Rehabilitation Project

We’re working on upgrading the Rancho Verde Pump Station! This station, serving The Ranch in the Carlsbad community, is 27 years old and located at Camino Lindo and Calle Acervo in Carlsbad. The upgrade involves mechanical upgrades, electrical improvements, and site enhancements. This will enhance the pump station’s performance, improve drainage and make it easier for our team to access.
Construction is started at the end of 2023

Leucadia (L1) Force Main Assessment

The L1 Force Main is one of the District’s largest pipelines and conveys about 3 million gallons of wastewater per day below La Costa Avenue between El Camino Real and Highway 101. L1 is being assessed to determine its condition.
Small sections will be removed at key points and inspected by corrosion experts to determine the remaining life of the pipe. We’re dedicated to maintaining the integrity of our pipes to keep our beaches clean and safe!

Completion of the Village Park No. 7 Pump Station Upgrade

Good news! We finished replacing the Village Park No. 7 Pump Station in June 2023. This pump station, located in the Village Park residential area of Encinitas near the corner of Mountain Vista Drive and Whitewood Place, got a makeover.
We replaced the below-grade pump station with a new, smaller design, and installed a new high grade plastic pipe. The upgrade is expected to reduce electrical usage and costs, as well as boost the reliability of our wastewater system.
