In July 2013 we began a multi-year construction program to rehabilitate the Orange County Sanitation District (OCSD)’s regional sewers in the City of Newport Beach. The Newport Beach Program consists of five construction projects all taking place within close proximity of one another. The program was developed to share information with our stakeholders on all projects that may potentially impact them. Please see description for each project below.
The Newport Beach Program map provides the locations of all five projects.
If you have any questions regarding current construction of the Newport Beach Program, please contact our Community Liaison at (714) 378-2965.
