Talbert Seawater Barrier
Undergoes Renovation

The District owns and operates a series of underground injection wells in Fountain Valley and Huntington Beach to prevent seawater intrusion into the basin. Over time, repairs are needed to prevent well corrosion. Sound planning, regular maintenance and investment in repairs keep O.C. water reliable.

Talbert Barrier Protection Project construction will soon begin on a portion of the seawater barrier. This project involves the repair of six wells along Ellis Avenue between Newland and Bushard streets, and two wells within Harper Park. Construction will not impact the water supply or quality.

Mobilization of construction equipment will begin in late June and last through September 2015. Construction hours along Ellis Avenue are from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. Lane closures are expected along the eastbound portion of Ellis Avenue during this timeframe.
