Construction Project Updates

As a water and wastewater provider, we continuously upgrade, maintain, and repair our system so it can continue to serve our customers. The purpose of this page is to provide information about current Rancho Water projects, explain their need and benefits and inform the community about potential impacts during construction. 

Although the District understands that construction creates an inconvenience, it is committed to keeping the community informed of current projects, while working to minimize construction impacts as much as possible.

Construction in Your Neighborhood

It is important to Rancho Water to provide you with reliable, high-quality water service. Occasionally, that may mean fixing mainline leaks, replacing valves, or working on other parts of our water delivery infrastructure, which could result in water shutdowns in your neighborhood. Our crews are working hard to find leaks and proactively fix problems that would otherwise result in wasted water and higher-cost solutions. 

We appreciate your understanding when this necessary work is underway.

If your water is shutdown unexpectedly, please check our Alerts page for information and sign up for Emergency Alert texts.

Bear Creek (Murrieta)

In late 2022, our crews identified and fixed 12 leaks in the area. In January 2023, Rancho Water proactively bundled additional leak repairs with four necessary valve replacements. This construction will limit the need for future repairs and will also result in modernized infrastructure for Bear Creek area.
