Pure Water San Diego North City Update
The City of San Diego is moving forward with Pure Water San Diego, a phased, multi-year program that will provide one-third of San Diego’s water supply locally by 2035. Multiple Pure Water facilities will be constructed throughout San Diego in phases.
The first phase of the Pure Water Program is located in the North City area and includes a new Pure Water Facility across the street from the existing North City Water Reclamation Plant on Eastgate Mall. To convey additional wastewater supplies to North City for purification, a new pump station is proposed to be constructed at Sherman Street and Custer Street, along with two proposed 11-mile-long wastewater pipelines through Clairemont and University City. Improvements will also be made to the water distribution system on a segment of Morena Boulevard. Construction will occur in phases between early 2019 and late 2021.
The North City Project is currently undergoing environmental review, and the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) is available for public review and comment through November 7, 2017. The public is invited to attend a public workshop on Wednesday, October 11, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the City of San Diego Public Utilities Department located at 9192 Topaz Way, San Diego, 92123.
The public is also invited to the Pure Water Day Open House, on October 21, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Bring the whole family to learn more about Pure Water, enjoy free snow cones, kettle corn and face painting! Visit www.purewatersd.org/openhouse to reserve your tour spot.
