Document Description
The District proposes an advanced purified groundwater replenishment project - Pure Water Soquel - to supplement natural recharge of the Santa Cruz Mid-County Groundwater Basin with purified water. The Pure Water Soquel project would help increase the sustainability of the District's groundwater supply, upon which it currently relies for 100 percent of its water supply, reduce the degree of overdraft conditions in the District's groundwater basin, protect against further seawater intrusion of groundwater aquifers, and promote beneficial reuse by reducing discharge of treated wastewater of the Pacific Ocean. The Project would provide sufficient treatment capacity to offset the groundwater supply impacts attributable to District pumping. The proposed Project facilities include: water treatment facilities; pump stations and pipelines for conveyance of source water, purified water, and brine concentrate; and injection and monitoring wells. The project also includes the potential use of the advanced purified water for landscape irrigation application and redistribution of groundwater pumping form District extraction wells.
