(Victorville)-– To avoid any future damage to vital infrastructure, the Victor Valley Wastewater Reclamation Authority (VVWRA) will construct a new pipeline to circumvent its original pipeline’s path under the Mojave River.
In the winter of 2010 five consecutive storms battered the Victor Valley, resulting in the declaration of a federal emergency. During these storms, VVWRA’s main interceptor was severely damaged in an area known as the Upper Narrows just below the D Street Bridge along the Mojave River. VVWRA’s Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to construct a new portion of pipeline away from the river to avoid future damage that could threaten public health.
Part of the pipeline will be constructed in Old Town Victorville along C Street and a small portion of 7th Street. To learn more about the details of this project, and its construction please join VVWRA at one of its open houses where staff will be on hand to answer questions. Stop by 16857 “C” Street in Victorville anytime between 8:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. on October 16th or December 6th to learn more about these projects.
