Tustin Water Service is always looking to improve system reliability to ensure our customers are receiving quality water and to maximize water storage for emergency response. This requires planning for capital improvements.
PFAS Treatment Facility
Portions of Orange County's groundwater supply have been impacted by per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) that are prevalent in the environment and were once used in many consumer products.
The Orange County Water District will be constructing a water treatment facility at Main Street and Prospect Avenue to remove PFAS from four wells in Tustin. Construction will begin in March 2023 and is expected to take 18 months.
Please see the documents below for more information.
Tustin Water Service received a $1.5M grant through the Santa Ana Watershed Protection Authority and Orange County Water District to drill a new potable water well within the Tustin Water Service area. The existing Beneta Well site (removed from service in 2010) was selected as the new well site location, and Phase 1 - Drilling of Beneta Well No. 2 began March and was completed September 2022.
Phase II – Well Equipping, was awarded in October 2022 with construction beginning Spring 2023. Phase II- Equipping construction duration is estimated for 12 months.
Simon Ranch Reservoir and Booster Pump Station Replacement
Simon Ranch Reservoir is located at the intersection of Outlook Lane and Valhalla Drive in North Tustin.
Planning efforts began in 2006 when an evaluation of the reservoir indicated that the facility’s useful life was coming to an end.
The City Council approved the construction contract with Pacific Hydrotec Corp on February 18, 2020 and construction was complete in June 2022.
The following video provides a general overview of the project.
