Otay Saves Water through Its Annual Leak Detection Program
As part of the Otay Water District’s preventative maintenance program to safeguard its water supply and reduce water loss, the District will conduct annual leak inspections of its pipelines beginning March 5 through an estimated completion date of May 3. During this process, the District’s contractor, Matchpoint Incorporated, will inspect approximately 165 miles of potable and recycled water mains within the District’s service area, primarily areas in eastern Chula Vista.
Customers may see Matchpoint workers inspecting the meter in front of their home or business typically between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, but some weekend and night work may also be required. The duration of the inspection can range from a few minutes to one day. Workers will be wearing a Matchpoint Incorporated logo and will carry company identification. They will not need access to customers’ homes or properties.
Workers may be lifting water meter covers, inspecting, and attaching equipment. If a leak is suspected on a customer’s property, the District will contact the customer and advise them of the leak.
