East Orange County Water District (EOCWD) has begun the 6th Street Phase of its Sewer Capacity, Reliability & Augmentation Project, and work will soon begin in your neighborhood. Please plan ahead, leave early, and allow extra time to reach your destination.


Construction is anticipated to begin on or about August 24, 2022 on 6th Street between B St. and El Camino Real. Once the initial sewer segment is complete, construction will continue into the intersection of 6th Street and El Camino Real. Construction in the area will last approximately two months until completion.


Construction hours are 7:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and some Saturdays. Please keep in mind that inclement weather may necessitate schedule changes.

Why is the Project Needed?

Select sewer lines are being upsized, allowing for continued reliability and future population growth.
The current sewer system dates back to 1962 and some sewer lines are in need of repairs/replacements to ensure toilets, shower and sink drains remain operational. 

What to Expect During Construction

  • Open trench excavation of existing pipes.

  • Street lanes may be restricted.

  • Neighborhood streets will remain open during construction.

  • Signs will be posted if any temporary parking restrictions are necessary.

  • Increased truck and construction traffic.

  • Noise, dust and vibrations.

  • Access to driveways will remain available. 

  • Pedestrian access will be available.

  • All businesses are open during construction.
