EVMWD receives $8.4 million in funding for sewer improvements in Lakeland Village and along Highway 74

Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) received $8.4 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding from the Riverside County Board of Supervisors to improve the sewer systems in two unincorporated communities.

The funding will allow for improvements in the Lakeland Village Community and on the EVMWD’s eastern border along Highway 74.

The $500,000 Lakeland Village project will extend sewer service to the Lakeland Village Community Center and adjacent properties. This project received $400,000 in ARPA funds. EVMWD also received $8 million in ARPA funds towards the Highway 74 project. This $10 million project will construct 12,500 feet of sewer backbone extending from Rosetta Hills to EVMWD’s easterly service boundary at  Ethanac Road.

“We are grateful to the County and Supervisor Kevin Jeffries for being part of the solution when it comes to the region’s sewer needs,” EVMWD General Manager Greg Thomas said. “The funding will significantly improve the quality of life for these communities, providing sewer service access to those who currently rely on septic.”

Last March, President Biden signed into law a $1.9 trillion economic stimulus bill also known as the COVID-19 Stimulus Package or the American Rescue Plan Act. The ARPA funds are eligible to be used for several local and state projects, including investing in necessary water and sewer infrastructure.

In October, the Board of Supervisors approved the allocation of $65,000,000 in county ARPA funds to the infrastructure category to support economic recovery within Riverside County.
