Campo Road Sewer Replacement Project
The Campo Road Sewer Replacement Project will replace 1.41 miles of 10-inch-diameter sewer main with a new 15-inch-diameter sewer main pipeline along State Route 94 (SR 94) in Rancho San Diego (Campo Road).
The project involves installing approximately 1.75 miles of 15-inch-diameter sewer pipeline in easements that cross the properties of Rancho San Diego Village and the Rancho San Diego Town Centre, and in the SR 94 public right of way between Avocado Blvd and Jamacha Road.
Construction started in September 2017. Pipeline installation will be substantially completed in June 2019, which
will allow the removal of K-rail on SR 94. Paving for the shoulder of SR 94 is subject to environmental restrictions
and Caltrans direction but is expected to be completed no later than fall 2019. Minor construction activities may
occur through December 2019.
Otay Water District
Otay Water District provides sewer collection for more than 15,000 people in the Jamacha Basin communities of Rancho San Diego, Calavo Gardens, Singing Hills, and portions of Mount Helix. The District regularly invests in capital improvement projects to assure efficient operations, comply with regulations, and replace aging infrastructure. District capital improvement projects are funded through user rates and capacity charges.
The Campo Road Sewer Replacement Project is part of an ongoing series of projects to rehabilitate and upgrade the sewer system in the communities served by Otay Water District.
The new pipeline will replace a 10-inch sewer main that can no longer provide adequate capacity for sewer flows in the area. The new 15-inch-diameter pipeline will reduce the potential for sewer overflows, and its new alignment will allow the District to construct and maintain the pipeline without disturbing sensitive environmental areas.
Sewer service will not be affected. Sewer pipes are being replaced in sections, for example, between one manhole and the next. As the process begins, an upstream manhole will be fitted with a pump bypass system. Sewage is then moved through a fully contained roadside relay system to the next downstream manhole.
- In consultation with Caltrans, the District has specified night work for this project, with the majority of activity limited to the hours between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. Temporary traffic control is also specified for project work at the Jamacha Blvd. / SR 94 intersection.
- Steel plates will be used to cover open trenches at the end of each work day. Trenched areas will also be repaved at the end of the project. Please drive carefully in the construction zone.
- During construction, some dust and noise will be unavoidable.
- Mail delivery and trash collection will not be affected.
- To protect the extensive environmental habitat along SR 94 and reduce the need for sound walls, the District will limit construction during the nesting season to minimize impacts to sensitive birds near the project. Construction started in September 2017. Pipeline installation will be substantially completed in June 2019, which will allow the removal of K-rail on SR 94. Paving for the shoulder of SR 94 is subject to environmental restrictions and Caltrans direction, but is expected to be completed no later than fall 2019. Minor construction activities may occur through December 2019.
The District’s budget for the Campo Road Sewer Replacement Project is approximately $10.5 million.
