In response to the Coronavirus, COVID-19 pandemic, San Elijo Joint Powers Authority (SEJPA) is taking precautionary measures to protect our community and employees. Until further notice, the SEJPA facilities are closed to all visitors, educational tours, and non-essential activities. Essential site visits and supply deliveries are by appointment only (760-753-6203). Please note that all persons should avoid entering the facility if they have a cough or fever; maintain a minimum six-foot distance from one another; and not shake hands or engage in any unnecessary physical contact. All persons entering this facility are required to comply with social distancing, hygiene requirements, and wear a mask or a cloth face covering. Water quality protection performed by SEJPA has not been impacted. Washing hands and using sanitizing wipes are vital to slowing the spread of coronavirus, however, please don’t flush them down the toilet as they negatively impact the sewer system. Recommended COVID-19 response measures are available by the State, County, and CDC.

Thank you for your understanding and your efforts to protect our community.
