Document Description
The proposed project would entail construction of a potable water pipeline and associated facilities to convey desalinated sea water produced in Mexico into Otay Water District's service area in southern San Diego County, CA. The scope of the proposed project is limited to the portion within the jurisdiction of the United States and would involve the construction and operation of an approximately four-mile long (depending on the selected alternative) potable water pipeline with a set diameter of between 48 and 54 inches, and a metering station within the Otay Mesa area of the County of San Diego just north of the U.S./Mexico border. Additionally, a pump station and/or disinfection facility may be constructed if needed. The scope does not include the proposed desalination plant in Rosarito, Mexico or associated pipeline infrastructure in Mexico.
