The Otay Water District conducts infrastructure projects as part of its capital improvement program to replace, repair, maintain, and improve its public water, recycled water, and sewer facilities. All construction projects are in line with the District’s mission to provide exceptional water and wastewater services to its customers, and to manage District resources in a transparent and fiscally responsible manner.
Current Construction Projects:
The project involves replacing and upgrading approximately 0.6 miles of 8- and 10-inch-diameter water main in Hidden Mesa Road with 12-inch-diameter piping, abandoning 0.55 miles of 12-inch-diameter water line along Vista Vereda, Hidden Mesa Trail, and private property easements, and installing 0.35 miles of 2-, 4-, 8- and 12-inch-diameter water line along Vista Vereda. The project will also remove a 12-inch-diameter water main that can no longer reliably provide service to the area.
The project will replace the existing 870-1 High-Head and 571-1 Low-Head Pump Stations with a new pump station, including new recirculating pumps with chlorination injection capabilities. It will also remove and replace the existing liner and cover of the 36.7 million-gallon 571-1 Reservoir and install new inlet/outlet piping for the reservoir.
