The Rancho Cielo Raw Water Pump Station was constructed and completed in 2004 on Del Dios Highway to pump raw water from Lake Hodges directly to the R.E. Badger Filtration Plant. The Lake Hodges Dam Flume, a portion of which is shown to the right, provided all the water to the District until 1964, when Colorado River water augmented the area's supply. The flume was the only outlet to Lake Hodges Dam. The flume was taken out of service in August 2003 and replaced with a new 36-inch water line. Local water is still able to enter the San Dieguito Reservoir through a new 18-inch waterline that was installed in the old flume west of Del Dios Highway. The new 36-inch and 18-inch pipelines and the pump station were dedicated in August 2004.
