Zone C Phase Map

Construction is estimated to take five months, starting in August and occurring mostly on weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., except for approximately one week of night work. We do not anticipate any disruption in water or wastewater services to you or your neighbors.

The District is targeting a completion date prior to the winter months, when outdoor watering demands are lower, to allow the District to increase its storage of recycled water and make it available for the high demand summer months.

The District is working closely with the City of Mission Viejo and Newhart Middle School to notify residents and families of the construction and to ensure impacts are minimized.
