Watering Landscape in 2021- Done!

Let your irrigation systems rest, and reap the benefits in 2022!
Thanks to recent rains, landscapes shouldn't need any more water until the new year. Cooler, shorter days provide perfect conditions for soil moisture retention, particularly below the soil’s surface and under mulch. If rains continue, consider resting your irrigation systems through January 2022 - or even longer!

Customers needing assistance with making seasonal adjustments to irrigation timers are encouraged to call the District’s Conservation Specialist at 805.969.2271

East Valley Road
Water Main Replacement

Construction will begin in January 2022

The District is 100 years old - and so are some of our pipelines! As part of our Capital Improvements program, Montecito Water District will be upgrading approximately 1 mile of water main that dates back to the 1920's.  

Project Schedule

Start Date:  Monday, January 3rd

Completion: Summer 2022

Scope: East Valley Rd.(192) from Freehaven Dr. to Orchard Ave.

Hours: Monday-Thursday 8am to 4pm, Friday 8am-1pm

Contractor: J Vega Engineering


Please anticipate minor traffic delays.
While work is planned in efficient short stretches to minimize impacts, we do recommend avoiding the area during construction hours when possible.


Thank you for your patience and support as we complete this important project. Upgrading aging infrastructure improves water delivery reliability by helping to avoiding water outages and water loss experienced during main breaks.
