HDWD started construction of phase 1 on January 5, 2017. To prevent all of Yucca Valley being under construction at the same time, Phase 1 has been split up into four separate packages. Package A, C, and D are made up of mobile home parks, multifamily residences, single family residences, vacant parcels, and commercial properties. Package B consists of three lift stations. These lift stations will be located on Kickapoo Trail, Balsa Avenue, and Paxton Road. The sewage will flow to these lift stations and their purpose is to move the sewage towards the treatment plant. Construction of the three lift stations will take place at different times throughout phase 1.
Area A of the Phase 1 is currently under construction. The collection system is being installed by Sukut Construction. During the removal of existing pavement and the installation of pipes, lateral stub-outs, as well as re-paving, some roads will be intermittently be closed.

Wastewater Treatment and Reclamation Facility
Construction on the Wastewater Treatment and Reclamation Facility is scheduled to start in fall of 2017. It will take approximately 18 months to construct. The facility is expected to treat and reclaim 1.2 million gallons of wastewater a day. Once the facility is completed in spring of 2019, private property connections will begin. The District will notify property owners six months prior to the required hookup deadlines. District personnel will also direct residents how to apply for the expanded use loan that will pay for any hookup fees.
