Maintenance in Mission Viejo near Marguerite & Jeronimo

In an effort to maintain our critical infrastructure, Santa Margarita Water District is replacing eight valves in Mission Viejo near Marguerite and Jeronimo. These valves have reached the end of their useful service life.   The impacted homes are on the following streets:

  • Via San Clemente
  • Via Primero
  • Via Madrugada
  • Via Segundo

Water service will be shut off on January 28, 2020, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. as crews work to upgrade the valves. 

Crews will shut off the water to each home promptly at 8 a.m. on January 28. They will then dewater the street and remove the worn-out valves. Once the old valves are out, the new 162-pound valves will be precisely installed and reconnected. Once all eight valves have been successfully replaced, crews will then turn on the water and check that each home has water service. 

Please ensure that your washing machine and all faucets are turned off by 8 a.m. on January 28.

We apologize for the inconvenience and greatly appreciate your patience.
