Requa Interceptor Project - Press Release

Indio, CA., The Valley Sanitary District (VSD) Board has awarded the contract for the Requa Interceptor Project to Downing Construction Inc. of Yucaipa.  Downing Construction is a California contractor specializing in pipeline installation. 

The Requa Interceptor Project consists of 4.2 miles of new sewer pipeline and other related utility improvements. The purpose of the project is to add capacity to the sewer system in Indio to the District’s Water Reclamation Facility and increase capacity to accommodate future development.
