Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) routinely opens fire hydrants to blast stagnated water and sediment from local water mains. The presence of fine sediment in the water system poses no public health hazard, however the accumulation of sediment may cause water to become discolored or develop an unpleasant taste and odor
EVMWD is scheduled to begin construction in early May through late fall on a sewer improvement project to install approximately 2,500 feet of new sewer pipeline and upgrade two lift stations. The construction work will occur along Mission Trail, a major thoroughfare between the cities of Lake Elsinore and Wildomar. (Click here for map.) Once complete, the project will increase capacity and improve the efficiency of our sewer system.
