PE.com-With hundreds of more homes anticipated in northern Wildomar and southern Lake Elsinore, the area’s sewer operator is expanding its system to meet the demand.
Construction started this week on Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District’s sewer and lift station improvement project along Mission Trail. The work will likely cause some disruptions and inconveniences in the ensuing weeks, district officials said.
The $14-million project will add about 2,500 feet of pipeline between Corydon and Vine streets, a section of Mission Trail that divides Wildomar and Lake Elsinore, district officials said.
As many as 2,500 future homes will be accommodated by the expanded capacity as a result of the project, which is targeted for completion in late fall.
“We have a lot more development in this southern area (of the district) and we’ve got a lot more coming,” said district Board President Andy Morris, a Wildomar resident. “We’re at capacity, so we’re trying to be ready for what’s coming.”
Failing to upgrade and expand the system could disrupt growth that has already been planned for the area, Morris said.
“You could really put yourself in a bad situation, with somebody building something and not enough sewer system capacity to serve them,” he said.
Crews have already started initial tasks on the installation of a larger pump at the district’s sewage lift station on Mission Trail. That station is situated next to the south bank of the San Jacinto River bed in Lake Elsinore.
Most of the construction will occur between 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and it could result in traffic controls, minor traffic delays, lane closures, noise, dust, vibrations and sewer odors. Tasks may require temporary bus stop relocations and temporary parking, sidewalk and bicycle lane restrictions. Story source>LINK
