FY 23-24 Pipeline Replacements Area Map.pdf

This year, the Fallbrook Public Utility District is replacing over a mile of pipeline in central Fallbrook.  With a projected cost of $3,574,950 (funded by the District's Capital Improvement Program), the project will replace 9,200 feet of pipeline in the District’s service area in and near downtown Fallbrook. Work sites will be located on or near East Elder St, Potter St, Lilian Way, Minnesota Ave and Mission Rd.  As of March 2024 the Hawthorne St and Orange Ave phase of this project has been postponed (please see map with estimated schedule below).  The portion of the FPUD water distribution system that is being replaced serves District residents, local small businesses, the Naval Weapons Station, and provides emergency service to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton. Many of the 80-year-old pipelines are approaching the end of their anticipated service life. The replacement is crucial to serve citizens and the community.

Customers affected by water shutdowns during this work will be notified in advance by letter and phone, and signage will be posted in affected areas of the community to notify motorists of potential traffic impacts.

If you have any questions or concerns about this project, please contact the District Engineering Department at: (760)728-1125 (press 5)
