Starting Monday, November 21, IRWD, in coordination with The Irvine Company, will begin the process of moving dirt and other material from the IRWD Reservoir site (located south of Santiago Canyon Road, east of Jamboree) to the Santiago Hills II project site (north of Santiago Canyon Road). This phase of work is expected to last approximately 4 weeks, and will entail dirt hauling trucks crossing Santiago Canyon Road which may have occasional minor traffic impacts.
For more information on this phase of the project, please contact The Irvine Company at (949) 720-2610.

Residents may now water their landscaping on any day of the week, as long as they are in compliance with current City water usage regulations, including:
Watering of landscape is prohibited between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., and is limited to no more than 15 minutes per day per station.
Washing down hard or paved surfaces such as driveways, sidewalks, etc. is prohibited.
Watering of landscaping with excessive run-off is prohibited.
Washing vehicles is prohibited, except by hand-held bucket or hand-held hose equipped with a positive self-closing water shut-off nozzle.
