Water outage: On Sunday, August 19, there was a water main break affecting many of the residents of Coronado Hills. All homes east of Indian Ridge (including that road) are out of water. Vallecitos crews are on site making the repairs. The estimated time for water service to be back on is Monday at 2:00 AM. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 

Traffic alert: From August 6 through Monday, August 20, motorists can expect multiple lane closures along eastbound San Marcos Blvd. from Viewpoint Dr. to Knights Realm and westbound San Marcos Blvd. from Knights Realm to Rancho Santa Fe Ave. These closures will accommodate major roadway repair work resulting from the water main break that occurred on Tuesday, July 24 due to a decades-old corroded pipe.

To further encourage customers to reduce outdoor water use, Vallecitos participates in a regional "WaterSmart" landscape contest to award customers whose yards best exhibit the beauty of California-friendly, low-water gardening. Vallecitos' first place winner receives a $250 gift certificate to a local nursery and recognition at a Vallecitos Board meeting. Second and third place winners also earn gift certificates (in lesser amounts).  If you're proud of your water-wise yard, we encourage you to enter the contest!

Congratulations to the 2018 winners!

  • First place - Rhonda Holmes and Jeff Jenco
  • Second place - Dennis and Shannon Root
  • Third place - Patti Joyce and Jeffrey Moore
