Infrastructure Improvements

The District operates and maintains over 110 miles of water distribution pipes, 4600 service connections, groundwater wells, pump stations, Juncal Dam, Jameson Lake, nine reservoirs and two water treatment facilities. Aging infrastructure is a challenge for all public water systems, and Montecito is no exception. Many District-owned pipes, reservoirs, and facilities were built in the 1920s. To support water supply reliability, the District continues to prioritize main replacements and modernization of its water distribution system with Capital Projects.
