North County Pipeline Upgrades Complete
Water Authority crews completed relining a 2.3-mile segment of Pipeline 5 in Fallbrook and San Marcos, returning the pipeline to service in April. The pipeline was relined with new steel liners expected to last for more than 75 years. The $31 million project was conducted in eight segments to minimize impacts to the nearby communities. During construction, crews eliminated two planned portals, helping save more than $217,000.
