TCWD Message to our Customers:

Trabuco Canyon Water District (TCWD) wants to assure our customers that the water at your tap continues to be of the highest quality and 100% safe to drink. The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has no impact on the quality of your drinking water and there is no need to use bottled water as a substitute.

TCWD's drinking water comes from imported surface water and local groundwater sources, and is filtered and treated with chlorine before entering the water distribution system to ensure that it stays safe through our system to your home. TCWD is also taking steps to ensure that service to our customers will continue uninterrupted so your drinking water is both available and plentiful. If you have any questions, please contact us.

LOCATION: Near TCWD’s Dimension Water Treatment Plant and Serrano Creek in Lake Forest.

SUMMARY: Reroute approximately one mile of pipeline used for conveying Colorado River water to TCWD’s Dimension Water Treatment Plant.

DESCRIPTION: Water from the Colorado River is supplied to TCWD through a 16-inch steel pipeline that crosses Serrano Creek in Lake Forest. The transmission line is the main source of water to TCWD’s Dimension Water Treatment Plant. The section of 16-inch pipe that crosses Serrano Creek is in threat of failure and will be rerouted to a bridge crossing where the line will be safely accessed and maintained.

“This project has been in the works since 2011, requiring coordination with many regulatory agencies, other public utilities and cooperation from public and private land owners. The alternate route required several new from both private and public entities, and now that they have been procured, the project is out to bid.” Hector Ruiz, General Manager.

COST: Approximately $1.27 million (per November 2012 estimated construction costs based on FEMA's Cost Estimating Format for Large Projects).
