Pacific Beach Pipeline South Replacement Project

Project Overview

The City of San Diego (City) is replacing and rehabilitating aging water and sewer infrastructure to avoid future service disruptions such as water main breaks and sewer pipeline stoppages. As part of the City’s efforts, Pacific Beach Pipeline South will replace approximately 7.6 miles of water main and approximately 1.6 miles of sewer main in the Midway/Pacific Highway Corridor and Mission Bay areas. The project will also demolish the Pacific Beach Reservoir, which was built in 1908 and removed from service more than 20 years ago.

This project will contribute towards the City’s ongoing program that mandates the replacement of all aging and deteriorating cast iron water mains currently in service. It will:

  • Replace associated water services, fire hydrants, curb ramps, and traffic control devices
  • Use best management practices to control erosion and protect storm drain inlets
  • Resurface streets impacted by project construction activities
  • Install new accessibility curb ramps

These improvements are consistent with goals set forth in the City’s Climate Action Plan, by maintaining water supplies and services that support the region.
