The 2019 Superbloom is a natural phenomenon unlike anything the City has ever experienced and demonstrates the extreme beauty of the City of Lake Elsinore. We would like to thank residents and visitors for their patience as we faced substantial challenges related to this international attraction. At this time, the City is experiencing a high call volume. Walker Canyon is currently open, however parking is very limited. Lake Street and Nichols Road are also now open.

Post Date:10/22/2018 10:46 AM

In August, the City began the 3rd Street Drainage project. This $4.1 million project has been long-awaited to address drainage concerns in this part of the City.

Upon completion, this project is expected to spur economic development and additional private investment in the City including the planned Walmart Supercenter, which is expected to start construction next year.

This project includes the installation of a Reinforced Concrete Box (RCB) and a 96" Reinforced Concrete Pipe (RCP) on 3rd Street south of State Route 74 (Central Avenue) and under Interstate 15 to adequately collect and convey the drainage water flows of approximately 704 tributary acres. 

Project Location: Third Street South of State Route 74 (Central Avenue), which includes portions of Collier Ave,, Cambern Ave,, Conard Ave and Welch Drive. Project begins at Collier Avenue and ends at Cambern Ave. 

Project Impacts: No significant impacts expected at this time.

Project Description: 

  • Phased installation of an underground reinforced concrete pipe (RCP) and a reinforced concrete box (RCB) structure 
  • Construction of a master drainage facility that would provide flood protection to the existing Third Street channel watershed and adjacent properties
