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.
