Vallecitos earned two engineering awards for Linda Vista East Sewer Project.
Vallecitos was recently awarded the “Project of the Year” from the American Water Works Association San Diego – Imperial Counties Chapter and the “Award of Merit Civil Engineering Project” from The American Society of Civil Engineers San Diego Section for completing the Linda Vista East Sewer Project. The project successfully addressed a myriad of challenges to replace 3,400 feet of aging clay sewer pipe and relocate the new pipe out of the environmentally-sensitive area (formerly a tributary to the San Marcos Creek). Replacing and relocating this sewer line will minimize the potential for sewer spills while reducing maintenance efforts and costs, ultimately benefiting our ratepayers and the environment. The project involved tunneling a 24” hole underneath State Route 78 and was completed on time and under budget.
