Purified Water Pipeline Installation Moves Along in Santee and Lakeside

Rock breaking at Mast Blvd. and Los Ranchitos

Crews are making headway on the purified water pipeline in Santee and Lakeside with 1.9+ miles installed to date.


Construction is underway on Mast Boulevard at Los Ranchitos Road. Roadways on the north side of Mast are being flagged and detoured for trenching and pipeline installation. This work is expected to last until mid-November.


Pipeline work in the Laurel Canyon Road community is almost complete. Crews will continue to work westward on Lake Jennings Park Road toward Rancho Capitan and then Pino Drive. In mid to late November, a temporary detour around Rancho Capitan is anticipated. A temporary detour will occur at Pino Drive in December. Driveway access will remain open. 

This work is part of the 10+ mile pipeline that’ll transport treated water from the East County AWP facility to Lake Jennings. 

Please remember to follow detour signs and use caution in construction zones. Work hours are Monday through Friday from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm.
