Collection System Construction

 Visit DigLosOsos.com , a website developed specifically for the project collection system construction. DigLosOsos provided regularly updated schedules, maps of construction progress, information on expected traffic impacts, and contact information. With completion of pipeline installation, DigLosOsos is no longer being updated with new information.  However, information on the pipeline construction is still available to review.

 

The County is currently implementing a water conservation program, which includes  rebates for water saver fixtures.
