SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego County Water Authority will host an open house Wednesday night to provide information on relining some three miles of pipeline under several San Diego and La Mesa streets and parts of Mission Trails Regional Park.
The open house will be held at 5 p.m. at the San Carlos Branch Library.
The Mission Trails to Lake Murray Relining Project, set to begin next month, is part of a $786 million multi-decade effort designed to extend the service life of the 82 miles of pipelines in San Diego County that deliver the majority of the region's water supply, according to the Water Authority.
"This project is an important part of our commitment to ensuring our regional water system will continue to deliver a safe and reliable water supply to sustain the region's 3.1 million residents and $186 billion economy," said Bill Rose, the agency's director of engineering. "Relining projects are a cost-effective alternative to completely replacing entire sections of pipeline, and they have less construction impact to surrounding communities."
Crews will reline about three miles of pipeline south of state Route 52 in Mission Trails Regional Park, east of Tierrasanta. The work to reinforce the pipes with steel liners will extend south to Lake Murray Drive and include relining a half-mile of another pipeline along Lake Shore Drive into La Mesa.
Most of the work will be conducted underground, with 11 access portals established along the pipeline. Wooden sound walls will be placed at the portals to lessen noise. Safety barriers around the portals will reduce available traffic lanes, but streets will remain open, authority officials
