Water Use During Holy Fires

August 20, 2018 

Appeals due by October 31, 2018

EVMWD understands the burden that the Holy Fire placed on many families in our service area. Because some of our customers live in an area where Phos Check retardant was sprayed, the need to use more than usual water amounts to clean up the aftermath was unavoidable. Additionally, some customers may have been impacted by water use at evacuated properties due to needs of emergency personnel.

Our Board of Directors has agreed to consider allowances for those affected by the fires who may have used more water than usual. Deadline to apply is October 31, 2018.

Conditions that will qualify for possible allowances include:

  • Phos Check retardant and ash in swimming pools
  • Water used at residence between evacuation start and end date
  • Water used to remove Phos Check retardant and ash from homes and driveways after the fires

Residents who live in the affected areas and whose water use may have exceeded normal water use due to the fires should call EVMWD at (951) 674-3146 and speak with a customer service representative to review the process for consideration of an allowance for the billing cycle before October 31, 2018

To apply for a water use appeal, please fill out and submit the Holy Fire Water Use Appeal Form by October 31, 2018.

Important Information About a Proposed State Water Tax

August 17, 2018 

To protect customer interests, EVMWD continually monitors the introduction of legislation that could impact your water rates. The Brown Administration is currently considering adding language to the Governor’s budget bill that would require that retail water providers, such as EVMWD, collect a “voluntary” donation from each customer. The Governor contends this fee will secure safe drinking water for disadvantaged communities. However, EVMWD is concerned this fee will be confusing to customers and lead to additional administrative burdens. The details are still being ironed out in Sacramento, but EVMWD will keep you informed as we learn more. Please continue to visit www.evmwd.com for more information.

San Joaquin Drive Sewer Replacement

March 13, 2018 

When the Canyon Lake sewer system was originally constructed, property lines within the community had yet been determined. As a result a portion of the sanitary sewer lines were not routed along actual property lines. A home located on San Joaquin Dr. West was built over one of these lines, making repair and maintenance a concern. Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) has inspected the pipe and found it to be significantly corroded and near failure, therefore, the sewer line needs to be relocated and rebuilt. The existing sewer line will be abandoned and approximately 290 linear feet of new sewer line, 240 linear feet of sewer laterals and four manholes will be installed. The new sewer line is necessary to replace the aging infrastructure, avoid future leaks and sewer service interruptions while increasing sewer system reliability.

Railroad Canyon Road partial lanes opened while work is completed.

February 9, 2016 

Update 7:45 AM, Some repairs are still underway. One Eastbound lane and one Westbound lane are closed. Other lanes are open. Work expected to be complete by Thursday morning. EVMWD thanks you for your patience while repairs were being completed.

Lake Elsinore, CA –A recycled water line break at Railroad Canyon Road has prompted the closure of a section of Railroad Canyon Road between Grape Street and Canyon Hills Drive.

Recycled water is also added to Lake Elsinore to help stabilize lake levels for recreation.

“We apologize for any inconvenience this causes and we appreciate the public’s patience while our crews work safely and quickly to repair the break,” said Phil Williams, president of the EVMWD Board of Directors.

EVMWD provides service to more than 133,000 water, wastewater and agricultural customers in a 96-square mile service area in Western Riverside County.

Making Drinking Water Quality Even Better

August 13, 2014 

In February 2014, EVMWD will upgrade its drinking water disinfection process in the Temescal Region. Chloramine disinfection will replace the current chlorine disinfection. Both chemicals are safe and effective methods of water disinfection approved by the Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH). The chloramination process is accomplished by treating water with a compound of ammonia and chlorine, as opposed to the current procedure that uses only chlorine. Even though the chloramination procedure is a more popular and simple method of water disinfection, it may require changes on behalf of some of our customers.
