Construction Projects

We are El Paso Water, and we are growing by leaps and bounds. Part of dealing with that growth includes working on infrastructure and construction projects. There are 2,653 miles of water lines in El Paso. Our construction projects include continual upgrades, rehabilitation and expansions to our water, wastewater, reclaimed water and stormwater systems.

Sometimes, construction may cause traffic disruptions or other inconveniences. Please give yourself extra time and be patient as we work to improve our systems.
