PLU: San Elijo Water Reclamation Facility Public Utility
Document Description
The project proposes to create an additonal 600 ac ft (AF) per year of new water supply; improve water quality, reliability and operational efficiency of the recycled water produced at the facility; add treatment to allow the facility to accept and treat urban runoff; and create new opportunities to protect coastal water quality. Project improvements would include (1) constructing 0.5 MGD of advanced wastewater treatment, (2) converting an existing tank to store recycled water, (3) constructing a new recycled water distribution pumping station, (4) convert existing tanks to store treated wastewater from the Escondido Land Outfall for emergency outfall pressure equalization, and (5) construct new distribution pipelines to serve additional customers. Items 4 through 4 will be activities performed at the San Elijo Water Reclamation Facility. Item 5 would provide offsite recycled water extension pipelines along Encinitas Boulevard (from 3rd Street to Saxony Road, ~0.61 mile in length) and Paseo de Las Flores (from Quali Gardens Drive to Lynwood Drive, ~0.56 mile in length).
