The City is replacing and rehabilitating aging water and sewer infrastructure to avoid service disruptions such as water main breaks and sewer pipeline stoppages. Current work will begin within the week at the Ingraham Street and Grand Avenue intersection and then move north toward Tourmaline Street.

As part of the City’s efforts, Pacific Beach Pipeline South is replacing approximately 7.6 miles of water main and approximately 1.6 miles of sewer main in the Midway/Pacific Highway Corridor and Mission Bay areas.

This project will contribute towards the City’s ongoing program that mandates the replacement of all aging and deteriorating cast iron water mains currently in service. It will:

Replace associated water services, fire hydrants, curb ramps, and traffic control devices;

Use best management practices to control erosion and protect storm drain inlets;

Resurface streets impacted by project construction activities;

Install new accessibility curb ramps.

These improvements are consistent with goals set forth in the City’s Climate Action Plan, by maintaining water supplies and services that support the region.

Visit the CIP Project Map View to look at the project alignment.

Notices will be mailed to residents and businesses within the project area prior to the start of construction. In addition, the City’s contractor will deliver door hangers with the start date of construction for specific streets.

To keep you informed about the anticipated construction activities and impacts for both the water and sewer improvements, you are encouraged to sign-up for emailed project updates.

The project’s construction schedule runs through January 2020. The project’s planning, design, and construction budget is $44 million. The construction schedule and project budget are approximate and subject to change.
