Aliso Creek Runoff Recovery, Reuse, and Conservation Project
Document Type
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration

Document Description
South Coast Water District proposes to capture and reuse approximately 800,000 gallons per day (gpd) of urban runoff in Aliso Creek in Laguna Beach, California. The recovered urban runoff collected by the Project will be treated and reused by combining the water with recycled water produced at the Advanced Wastewater Treatment (AWT) System at the Coastal Treatment Plant. There will be an improvement to the water quality of the combined supply, making the AWT recycled water lower in salinity as well as increasing the overall recycled water supply for South Laguna, Dana Point, and Capistrano Beach. Downstream improvements in water quality are expected at Aliso Beach County Park because a portion of the urban runoff will be removed from Aliso Creek and constituents removed from the runoff water will be discharged in the Coastal Treatment Plant outfall. Removal of a portion of the urban runoff will also help to reduce excessive stream flow from urbanized areas and return stream flows in lower Aliso Creek to more natural levels.
