Document Description
A byproduct of reverse-osmosis is waste brine, which must be properly disposed of in order to protect basin water quality and comply with the Regional Water Quality Control Board. In order to provide disposal of waste brine and excess non-potable water, the District is proposing the extension of the existing Santa Ana Regional Interceptor (SARI) pipeline into the Yucaipa Valley. This is referred to as the District's Brineline Project, and will allow waste brine and excess non-potable water to be conveyed directly to Orange County for treatment with eventual disposal into the Pacific Ocean. The SARI pipeline, which this project would be a new component of, transports brine and wastewater from Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino Counties to Orange County Sanitation District's Regional Treatment Plant No. 1 or No. 2 prior to discharge into the Pacific Ocean.
