SERVICE LINE REPLACEMENT PROJECT
EGWD recently began a service line replacements project. The project replaces old service lines between main pipes and meters. During the work, water service will be temporarily shut off. Because the new service lines will be flushed with water before service is restored, each meter will be removed and then reinstalled to prevent water from passing through the meter and incorrectly charging each customer for the water used during the construction.
If you have any questions regarding the service line replacements project, please call our office at 916-685-3556.
KENT ST. WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT PROJECT
The Elk Grove Water District recently completed the installation of a new 10" diameter water main along Kent St. This water main replaces the previous water main which was old and undersized (4" diameter). As part of this project, new service lines were installed to each parcel on Kent St.
BUSINESS CENTER/CSD BLDG WATER MAIN LOOPING
The Elk Grove Water District installed a new water main loop near the Business Center and Cosumnes Community Services District (CSD) Administration Building. This project improves water system performance and water quality.
RAILROAD CORRIDOR WATER LINE
The Elk Grove Water District (EGWD) completed the installation of a transmission main along the railroad corridor in October 2016. The transmission main connects the Railroad Street Water Treatment Facility with the south side of EGWD’s water distribution system in the Hampton Village area. This project enhances EGWD’s water distribution system by facilitating the movement of treated water to areas of demand.
COLTON/ORTON WATER MAIN REPLACEMENT PROJECT
The Elk Grove Water District (EGWD) recently completed the installation of a new 8" diameter water main along Colton Ave. and Orton St. This water main replaces the previous water main which was old and undersized (4" diameter).

HAMPTON VILLAGE WATER TREATMENT PLANT REFURBISHMENT PROJECT
The Elk Grove Water District (EGWD) has refurbished the Hampton Village Water Treatment Plant (WTP). This project reactivated the Hampton Village WTP which was shutdown in 2008. The Hampton Village WTP provides an additional 1,000 gallons per minute of water to EGWD's source capacity, and improves the reliability of the water system by providing redundancy to the Railroad Street Water Treatment Facility.
METER RETROFIT PROJECT
Since 1992, State law has required the installation of a water meter as part of any new construction. AB 2572, passed in 2004, requires all unmetered buildings to be retrofitted with water meters by 2025. EGWD completed the installation of water meters in all commercial and residential properties in February, 2015.
