Requa Project Map and Status (8 Sept 2017)


The Valley Sanitary District Requa Sewer Project will continue to have traffic detours and delays.

Normal construction work will be from from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., however, traffic control may be in place 24 hours a day. During this time, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction.  Access to businesses and residents will be maintained but residents and motorists are urged to use alternate routes since delays of up to 15 minutes and longer may be encountered. Access for emergency vehicles will be unaffected. This work is highly weather dependent and the schedule may need to be shifted if inclement weather occurs.

The Requa Sewer Project is the installation of a four-mile gravity flow sewer pipeline and related utility improvements from central Indio to VSD’s Water Reclamation Facility. Construction began in June 2016 at VSD’s treatment facility and will end in September 2017 at the intersection of Madison Street and Highway 111.  The cost of the project is $15 million and will add capacity for the future commercial growth and development of the City of Indio along the Highway 111 corridor.

For more information, please call the Valley Sanitary District’s hotline at (760) 238-5413 from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or leave a message after hours.
