Santee Lakes visitors can expect pipeline construction between Lakes 3 and 4. Work will include trenching and the installation of wastewater pipeline.The team is currently at the north end of Lake 3 near the Kiwanis Playground where excavation began the week of February 12, 2024. The playground will remain open to visitors during construction.There is a road closure in between Lakes 3 and 4 with signage near the Sensory Garden that directs pedestrians where to walk. Another road closure will go into effect the week of February 26.In addition, some of the parking spots are blocked off near the playground restrooms but there is still plenty of nearby parking for visitors. The parking spots are a temporary staging area for construction equipment and materials.We appreciate the community’s cooperation during this ongoing construction work. The East County Advanced Water Purification Program will produce up to 30 percent of the region's drinking water with purified water production to begin in 2026.
