Seawatch Pressure Reducing Station Project

Irvine Ranch Water District will be constructing a recycled water pressure reducing station along the fire access road near Seawatch (about 100 feet southwest of the cul-de-sac). Some reconditioning work will also be performed at an existing pressure reducing station located about 640 feet northeast of the Coral Cay cul-de-sac.

The work will be done within the areas indicated in the map above.

The fire access road will be closed intermittently during construction hours to successfully integrate the new pressure reducing station into IRWD’s distribution system. Steel plates will be used to cover trenches and allow for pedestrian access along the road during   non-construction hours.

What: Construction of a recycled water pressure reducing station

When: October through December, 2022

Construction hours: 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Fridays
