Vista, CA-On March 18, 2024 the Vista Irrigation District Board of Directors will hold the fourth in a series of workshops regarding the Vista Flume Replacement Alignment Study.    Public input is welcome. and the community and Vista Irrigation customers are invited to attend.  The March 18, 2024 meeting will be held at 1391 Engineer Street, Vista CA 92081 starting at 9 a.m..  A complete agenda package is available online at: https://www.vidwater.org/files/322ad2c5a/2024_03_18_board+packet.pdf

The estimated cost for the preferred alignment is $180,000,000. Local water system predictive yield modeling analysis results and an updated review of project affordability indicates that replacing the Vista Flume (Flume) remains the District’s least costly water supply alternative inclusive of estimated costs for long-term solutions to mitigate Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) at Lake Henshaw. 

At nearly 100 years old, the Flume has exceeded its usable service life, is unsuitable for reuse and should be retired. A Water Supply Planning Study was completed in March 2020 and found that replacement of the Flume was the least costly water supply option for the District. The Flume Replacement Alignment Study (Study) began in February 2021 and is designed to support a decision by the District as to the preferred replacement alignment for the Flume. The Study will review many factors that weigh in the comparison of alternative alignments, and the selection of a preferred alignment will be guided by a risk versus cost evaluation. Alternatives will be ranked and screened based on a set of key criteria including project affordability and implementation, schedule, constructability, community impacts, land ownership, environmental, permitting, system hydraulics, and operations and maintenance.  

The purpose of the continuation of the third workshop for the Study is to present the remaining material not covered at the December 11, 2023 workshop, including finishing the project affordability analysis, next steps and to provide the following additional information requested by the Board: 

• Easement requirements for the recommended alignment alternative 

• Historical release data from Lake Henshaw 

• Projected San Diego County Water Authority rates for raw and treated water 

• Cost of water and yield comparisons with other local water projects 

• General impacts of the “To Flume” and “Not to Flume” projects on customer rates  

Vista Irrigation District Board meetings are generally held at 9:00 AM on the first and third Wednesday of each month. 

All meetings are held at the district office located at 1391 Engineer Street in Vista. Meetings are open to the public, and agendas are posted the Friday prior to each scheduled meeting. 

For further information about a meeting, or to request a copy of an agenda or staff report, please contact the Board Secretary at (760) 597-3128.
