Final Phase: Santa Rosa Lane
Water Main Replacement Project 


 Wednesday November 18, 2020 through Friday November 20, 2020 
Daily 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 
Road resurfacing scheduled for Santa Rosa Lane, from San Ysidro Road to San Leandro Lane.  We recommend using other streets to access the area on these dates. Traffic may be limited to one lane with potential delays of up to 10 minutes while work is being conducted.
Important:  Please avoid driving or walking on wet slurry as it may be sticky for up to 4 hours after it is laid.  Please do not operate sprinkler systems or drain water of any kind onto the street November 17 - 20th. 


Thank you for your patience as we work diligently to complete this important project. Modernizing infrastructure will help prevent unanticipated water loss and improve water delivery reliability. Please contact the District with any questions: 805-969-2271



Fall is the Time for Water Savings


Alena Steen, Coordinator of the Carpinteria Garden Park, shares "...fall is the perfect time for planting. Cooler temperatures and nourishing winter rains ensure the healthiest possible conditions. Some of my favorites include California fuchsia, goldenrod, bunchgrasses, sage, yarrow, California poppies, phacelia, narrowleaf milkweed, and hummingbird sage.
