The El Capitan Stadium Association, which owns and operates the Lakeside Rodeo Grounds, has plans to improve the rodeo grounds restroom facilities. The annexation of the Lakeside Rodeo Grounds into the San Diego County Sanitation District, which was approved last week, will allow direct wastewater services for the restrooms and the rest of the rodeo grounds.

The El Capitan Stadium Association, which owns and operates the Lakeside Rodeo Grounds, has plans to improve the rodeo grounds restroom facilities. The annexation of the Lakeside Rodeo Grounds into the San Diego County Sanitation District, which was approved last week, will allow direct wastewater services for the restrooms and the rest of the rodeo grounds.

San Diego County’s Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) has jurisdiction over special district boundary changes, and a 7-0 LAFCO board vote May 5 with no City of San Diego representative present approved the annexation of the rodeo grounds along with the El Capitan High School agricultural barn and a portion of Mapleview Street.

The former Lakeside Sanitation District and the rest of the county’s sanitation districts were merged into the San Diego County Sanitation District in 2011. 

The Lakeside portion of the county sanitation district includes 94.1 miles of sewer lines and an interceptor, which conveys wastewater into the City of San Diego’s collection system. 

The County of San Diego’s Department of Public Works manages the San Diego County Sanitation District.

The Lakeside Rodeo Grounds and El Capitan High School are adjacent to each other, and wastewater from the arena is currently conveyed to the San Diego County Sanitation District through an intertie to the high school. 

The intertie arrangement also includes an agreement in which the El Capitan Stadium Association reimburses the Grossmont Union High School District for the wastewater generated from the rodeo grounds.

The annexation of the rodeo grounds into the San Diego County Sanitation District will allow the El Capitan Stadium Association to be billed directly by the county.  LAFCO staff reviewed the proposal to annex the 6.45-acre rodeo grounds and recommended that the 1.62-acre parcel which includes El Capitan’s agricultural department also be annexed into the sanitation district along with the Mapleview Street public right-of-way which totals 3.08 acres between Vine Street and Ashwood Street.
