Water Main Replacement Program

The Water Main Replacement Program is a preventative, pro-active plan to replace and improve our aging water infrastructure before unexpected breaks or disruptions occur.

By replacing sections of pipeline we will conserve water by reducing water leaks, and improve your water service and water quality. The upgrades to our water system allow us to continue delivering safe drinking water at the lowest rates in the area. Our system serves over 65,000 customers throughout Watsonville, Corralitos, Freedom and the Pajaro Beach Community. The City Water Services Crew has an annual goal of replacing at least 1.5 miles of pipeline each year.
