District has long focused on the reliability of its
customers’ water supply.
District is always planning years in advance to make
sure that there is an adequate supply of high quality
water available on a daily basis—even during droughts,
earthquakes, fires and other emergencies.
Pardon our dust.
Pipeline construction is underway on San Ysidro Road
Installation of a new
10-inch water main on San Ysidro Road between East
Valley Road and East Mountain Drive is the centerpiece
of Phase I of the San Ysidro Capital Improvement
Program, now underway.
Work began in September and is scheduled to be
completed in mid-November, 2001.
Ductile iron pipe is the strongest,
longest lasting, and most secure water pipeline material
available. It can be expected to last a century or more.
Because it is stronger and more durable than other
pipeline materials, it is more reliable, especially
during emergencies such as earthquakes.
Nearly one mile of new water main
is being installed to replace 70-year old cast iron
water mains that have sustained numerous breaks, causing
water outages and street flooding. The new pipeline is a
vital part of the District’s transmission and
distribution system, providing water to key facilities
serving a significant portion of the Montecito
Along with the new pipeline, the
District is also replacing fire hydrants, water service
lines to customer meters, and adding a station to
regulate water pressure. Other improvements include
installation of a pipeline extension on East Mountain
Drive from San Ysidro Road.
