Desal Link Pipeline Project Starts This Fall

Authored on

The Desal Link project will connect key community water sources by installing an underground pipeline between the Charles E. Meyer Desalination Plant and water mains connected to the Cater Water Treatment Plant. This new pipeline will enable desalinated water to reach our entire service area while enhancing system resiliency and improving water quality. Construction will occur on Garden, Sola, Olive, Ortega, Calle Cesar Chavez, and Yanonali Streets. Local roads will remain accessible to residents but be closed in 3 block sections during active construction.
