  1. Lake Hills Pipeline Replacement

Project summary

Western Municipal Water District (Western) is working on replacing 2,031 feet of water pipeline in the Lake Hills HOA area. Currently, this area has some of the oldest pipelines in Western’s system resulting in water leaks and service interruptions. Once the project is complete, the new pipeline will improve water distribution, reduce emergency water outages, and will increase the amount of water available for fire suppression throughout the Lake Hills area.

Construction will consist of two phases. The first phase will include pipeline replacement construction in the cul-de-sacs of Mountain Court, Morning Sun Court, Meadow Mist Court and on a section of Lakepointe Drive (see maps below). The second phase of work will include pipeline replacement construction on Lakepointe Drive between Blue Haven and Sun Summit Drive.
