Document Description
The proposed Mission Basin Groundwater Storage and Recovery Project is intended to develop a reliable, local source of treated water. The Mission Basin lies almost entirely within the City of Oceanside and extends east from the Pacific Ocean to approximately the intersection of State Route 76 and County Road S13. Groundwater in the Mission Basin is currently used by the City of Oceanside through an extraction and desalination process. The proposed project would increase the use of Mission Basin groundwater through expansion of extraction and treatment, as well as through seasonal recharge and long-term water storage in the basin. Groundwater would be recharged with surface water, including local rainfall runoff, reclaimed water, and imported water during winter when excess conveyance capacity in the existing system would be available. During dry periods, the project would provide approximately 1,094 acre feet (af) of treated water a year for up to three consecutive years. Groundwter storage and recovery would require construction of a number of interconnected facilities to permit management of groundwater within the basin.
