Salinity Management Pipeline

The Calleguas Salinity Management Project (SMP) is a regional pipeline that will collect salty water generated by groundwater desalting facilities and excess recycled water and convey that water for re-use. Any unused salty water will be safely discharged to the ocean, where natural salt levels are much higher.

Wellfield Emergency Generator

The construction of the Wellfield Emergency Generators will primarily occur at Wellfield No. 2 (with some work at Wellfield No. 1 and along Grimes Canyon Road) and will include five diesel backup generators housed in a building, a fuel storage area, and an equipment yard for new electrical service to the wellfield.  Other work will also be completed at the wellfields to support the new facilities.

Construction is expected to be completed by mid-2020.

Calleguas-Crestview Interconnection Project


In an effort to better prepare for emergencies, Calleguas Municipal Water District (Calleguas), in collaboration with Crestview Mutual Water Company (Crestview), is diversifying its water resources by constructing a connection to Crestview's water system.  This important project will provide an additional water source allowing Calleguas to continue serving its customers during periods when imported water is not available, without affecting deliveries to Crestview's customers.

The project consists primarily of an underground vault in a vacant lot along Via Zamora, next to Springville Park and a pipeline through and adjacent to the parking lot of the park.  Construction is expected to be completed in Summer 2019.
