Pipeline Construction to Begin on Rancho Santa Fe Road

Encinitas, Calif. — Olivenhain Municipal Water District is beginning construction to replace aging water infrastructure on Rancho Santa Fe Road on the border of Carlsbad and Encinitas.

An existing pipeline originally installed in 1961 on Rancho Santa Fe Road between Las Olas Court and Avenida La Posta is approaching the end of its lifespan. This project will replace 1,500 feet of the 12-inch drinking water pipeline.

“Replacing old water mains ensures the continued reliability of our services,” said OMWD Board President Christy Guerin. “Proactive maintenance projects like this are necessary to avoid emergency breaks that can waste millions of gallons of water and be very costly.”
